La pazza gioia (Like Crazy)
dir. Paolo Virzì, Italy, 2016, digital, 118 min., in Italian w/English subtitles
Donatella and Beatrice reside in a psychiatric facility in Tuscany. They have very different life stories, but a chance to escape brings them together in an adventure that will change their lives forever and will help them realize the beauty in imperfection.
This free admission film festival is made possible thanks to the support of New Italian Cinema Events (NICE).
The Cinema Studies Program and the Center for Italian Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, in collaboration with International House Philadelphia, present the 2016 edition of New Italian Cinema. The festival has been curated by Nicola M. Gentili (Penn, Cinema Studies) and aims at presenting very recently released Italian feature films.
