A documentary film about New Haven's Little Italy that has played to packed crowds all over the area will soon have three showings in Branford and East Haven. The film, The Village: Life in New Haven's Little Italy, was the creation of award-winning journalist Steve Hamm. It had its successful debut at last year's New Haven Documentary Film Festival.

Let Hamm tell the story of how the film came to be: "The idea for this documentary came from the fact that I live in an apartment on Wooster Square, and I do my freelance writing in a room that looks over the square and St. Michael church. I noticed all of the funerals at the church and I thought that each funeral meant a lifetime of stories were being lost. It seemed like a good idea to try to capture some of the stories from people who were still living."
