Italian Cultural Institute
In an apartment building in Rome, a surly young man named Lorenzo is involved in a crime, and it’s up to the residents to piece together what happened in this wide-ranging study of clashing cultures. One of the most deeply impacted inhabitants is Lorenzo’s brother, Marco, a burned-out lawyer who consistently questions his profession’s relationship with the truth. The unhappy Nurit, a judge from Iran seeking political asylum, similarly frets about truth and wonders if silence isn’t the better option. But when one occupant’s disguised nationality is revealed via a hidden passport, followed by the discovery of a valuable dog in the basement, the building dwellers find that speaking up and doing what is right often trump the validity of facts.
Light refreshments will be offered. Reservations kindly suggested.
