Screening of Documentary "PANE AMARO" (Bitter Bread)
The Italian American Journey from Despised Immigrants to Honored Citizens by
Gianfranco Norelli and Suma Kurien
Often referred to as the first comprehensive depiction on film of the Italian immigrant experience in the United States, this 2009, feature-length, English language documentary, tracks the social, economic and political transformation of Italians from immigrant victims of violence and prejudice to prominent members of American society. The story is told by weaving together comments by noted American scholars with personal accounts from members of the community and through the use of a treasure trove of historical photographs and footage. Filmmakers Gianfranco Norelli and Suma Kurien will be on hand to introduce the film and conduct a post screening Q & A.

The suggested donation is $20.

Wine, Cheese and light fare will be served.
