Debut works under the stars in Palermo
by Camillo De Marco
- From 24 August an event for recently produced films held by Sudtitles. The films selected include Fuori dal coro, Sworn Virgin, Short Skin and NCapace
Debut pieces, pieces confirming the talent of their directors, the history of cinema: this is what lies in store at ESCO (allo scoperto), the cinema event organised by Andrea Inzerillo with Cultural Association SudTitles, which will kick off on 24 August at the Complesso Monumentale dello Spasimo di Palermo and close on 6 September with a tribute to Mario Monicelli and the screening of one of his best films, The Passionate Thief, starring Totò, Anna Magnani and Ben Gazzara.
Over the 14 days of the event, organised with the support of SIAE, screenings will be held of films recently produced in Italy. As at the beginning of the century in the first film theatres, the feature films will be introduced this year by the short films produced by Panaria Film.
Then the debut films of other young writers will follow, such as Eleonora Danco with NCapace [+see also:
