FORTUNATA
2017, True Colors, 103 min, Italy, Dir: Sergio Castellitto

After the international success of DON’T MOVE, director Sergio Castellitto returns with this suburban fairy tale of female empowerment. On the verge of a divorce from her contentious husband and with a young daughter in therapy, Fortunata (Cannes Best Actress winner Jasmine Trinca, in a star-making performance) is struggling to stay afloat, her dream of owning a beauty salon seemingly impossible - until a new love brings hope into her life.


Los Angeles Premiere!

LOVE AND BULLETS
AMMORE E MALAVITA
2017, Rai Com, 133 min, Italy, Dir: Antonio Manetti, Marco Manetti

This music-filled romp from the Manetti Bros. earned a Golden Lion nomination at the Venice Film Festival. Ciro (Giampaolo Morelli) is among the most feared men in Naples, one of two killers at the service of crime boss Don Vincenzo (Carlo Buccirosso), “the King of Fish.” One night a young nurse, Fatima (Serena Rossi), finds herself in the wrong place at the wrong time and sees too much; Ciro is given the job of getting rid of her. But when the two end up face to face, they recognize each other as childhood sweethearts.


Both films in Italian with English subtitles. | Screening format: DCP
