Oct 17, 2019 284

The Eastman Museum in Rochester, New York will host two screenings of Italian classic films. Ermanno Olmi's 1978 film, The Tree of the Wooden Clogs, will be shown as part of the Labor Film Series. The film reflects Olmi's deep understanding of the rhythms of life and labor of northern Italy’s peasants and his commitment to them.

Winner of the Palme d’Or, the film depicts the seasonal cycle of work on a small farm in late nineteenth-century Lombardy, capturing the social structure and events that shape the characters,  portrayed by non-actors. The screening will take place on Friday, October 18 at 7:30 p.m.
