Spettacolo: a documentary by Jeff Malmberg and Chris Shellen

Jun 02, 2017 543

Once upon a time there was a tiny hill town in Tuscany that found a remarkable way to confront their issues - they turned their lives into a play. Every summer for the past 50 years, their piazza becomes their stage and villagers play a part - the role of themselves. Every issue the town has faced in its history - their near annihilation by Nazis, the disappearance of their farming heritage, the commercialization of their land - has been dramatized and debated by the villagers in the center of town.

A lovely and elegiac documentary from the filmmakers of Marwencol, Jeff Malmberg and Chris Shellen. Presented by San Francisco Documentary Festival in collaboration with San Francisco Film Society and the Italian Cultural Institute. Click here to buy tickets and for more information.
