Bruno Beltrame has let it all hang out, for quite a while. All that's left of his old talent as a writer is just enough to ghost-write "other people's books", biographies of football players or television personalities. His passion for teaching has given way to an apathetic routine of tutoring equally apathetic students, including fifteen-year old Luca, who is as ignorant as the others, but vivacious and irreverent. One day the boy's mother turns up, like a ghost from the past, revealing a secret that turns Bruno's life upside down: Luca is his son, a son he knew nothing about... And that is not all: the woman is about to leave for a six-month job as a volunteer in Africa, and the boy cannot follow her there. She asks Bruno to take the boy in, and take care of him, but without revealing his true identity to him. A wonderfully touching and comedic debut feature from the award winning screenwriter of The First Beautiful Thing. 

 

In Italian with English subtitles. Light refreshments will be served.

 

Reservations kindly suggested.

Currently active in all the major cities of the five continents, the ninety Italian Cultural Institutes serve as an ideal meeting place for intellectuals, artists, and cultural operatives, as well as for ordinary citizens, both Italian and foreign, who wish to establish or maintain a relationship with our country. By acting not only as a showcase and source of current information on Italy, but also as a driving force behind initiatives and projects of cultural cooperation, the Italian Cultural Institute has become a focal point for both the Italian communities abroad and the growing demand for Italian culture throughout the world.

By extending the role of Embassies and Consulates, the Italian Cultural Institutes offer the most effective tools for promoting a worldwide image of Italy as a center of production, preservation, and dissemination of culture from the Classical Age until today. Along with organizing cultural events in a vast array of areas, including art, music, cinema, theatre, dance, fashion, design, and photography, the Italian Cultural Institutes:

  • Offer the opportunity to learn Italian language and culture through the organization of courses, the management of libraries and the preparation of educational and editorial materials;
  • Provide the networks and the premises to facilitate the integration of Italian operators in the process of cultural exchange and production at an international level;
  • Provide information and logistic support to public and private cultural operators, both Italian and foreign;
  • Continuously support initiatives aimed at promoting an intercultural dialogue based on the principles of democracy and international solidarity.
