New Italian Cinema 2017
Dir. Sergio Castellito, 2017
Fortunata (Jasmine Trinca) lives a frantic life, with an eight-year-old child and a failed marriage in her past. She is a home-based hair stylist, fighting daily to achieve her dream to open a salon, gain independence and be happy. She has planned every detail and she’s ready to face all obstacles, but she hasn’t considered one aspect: love. For the first time, she finds someone that values and loves her for the woman she is.
The Cinema and Media Studies Program and the Center for Italian Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, in collaboration with the Consulate General of Italy in Philadelphia and PI-Philly Italian Professionals in Philadelphia, present the 2017 edition of NEW ITALIAN CINEMA. The festival has been curated by Nicola M. Gentili (Penn, Cinema and Media Studies) and aims at showing very recent Italian released feature films in Philadelphia. Films are introduced and discussed with our Penn Italian Ph.D. candidates. This free admission film festival is made possible thanks to the support of New Italian Cinema Events.
All movies presented in Italian with English subtitles.
