Cinema Paradiso

Apr 7, 2013 6:00 pm - Apr 7, 2013
Location: AML Seniors Centre
To celebrate the opening of our Italian Language Courses, FOR FUN AND TRAVEL presents this much celebrated foreign film.

Cinema Paradiso offers a nostalgic look at movies and the effect they have on a young Sicilian boy as he and the other townsfolk try to escape from the grim reality of post-war Italy. This original 1988 film explores issues of youth, coming of age, and reflections about the past. This popular Italian comedy-drama was based on the life and times of its screenwriter/director Giuseppe Tornatore.

 

THE FILM WILL BE SHOWN IN ITALIAN WITH SUBTITLES IN ENGLISH.


An introduction and discussion will be held before and after the film. You're welcome to ask and answer questions in either Italian or English.
