North of Calabria is a half-documentary, half-improvised drama about small towns, death, life, and snails. The film won the Best Documentary Film Prize at the 2010 Summer Film Festival in Zamość, Poland. For one summer, the film crew mingles with the inhabitants of a small Polish town to create an almost-Italian comedy. North of Calabria is about a dream place to live, where living is easy and people know each other, tolerate their faults, like to meet to talk and just be together. It appears that all they need are a few Italian cooking classes and the art of carpe diem to turn a Polish province into a look-alike of Calabria, Italy.
Directed by Marcin Sauter
The film will be followed by a Q&A with Mr. Sauter.
