About this event

Italian cinema lands in Los Angeles thanks to Italian Screens with four screening of three movies that were nominated for the David di Donatello 2022 and won major awards: Ariaferma by Leonardo di Costanzo, Freaks Out by Gabriele Mainetti, Qui rido io by Mario Martone.

Italian Screens is an initiative promoted by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MAECI), Cinecittà for the Directorate General of Cinema and Audiovisual of the Ministry of Culture (DGCA-MiC) and Accademia del Cinema Italiano - Premi David di Donatello.

Freaks Out

The movie takes place in Rome, in 1943: Matilde, Cencio, Fulvio and Mario live as siblings in Israel's circus. When Israel mysteriously disappears, the four "freaks" are left alone in the Nazi-occupied city. Someone, however, has a plan in store that could change their destinies... and the course of history.

Film maker Gabriele Mainetti will be attending this screening for a special Q&A with the audience.
