About this event

Proof of vaccination, ID, and masks are required.

It is 1985 and the Macaluso sisters (Maria, Pinuccia, Lia, Katia and Antonella) are five young, orphaned siblings who live in and work from a shabby rooftop apartment in Palermo, Sicily. They make a living by renting doves out for ceremonies of all manner. Following each gig, the doves return home on their own, by air, naturally. One hot summer, a rare beach outing is planned on a day off from work. Near the close of a day full of enchantment, reverie, and close encounters with secret lovers, a shocking catastrophe alters their lives. The delicate balance of sisterhood is tested in this striking, generation-spanning, film.

Discussion after the film. Details to be announced.

* Location: Nyack Center, Broadway at Depew Avenue * Date: Wednesday, December 15 * Time: 8:00 PM

“The Macaluso Sisters is a film dealing with the metamorphosis of bodies and objects over a span of seventy years. It’s a film about time. About memory. About things that last. About people who stay even after death. It's about old age as an incredible achievement of life.” – Emma Dante, writer and director

“Critic's Pick. HAUNTING AND POWERFUL. No mere sun-kissed coming-of-age film… Metaphysical grace and hints of fantasy… Magical moments are grounded by (the) tactile photography, which accentuates the youthful vitality of the sisters’ bodies and the playful chaos of their movements. – The New York Times
