Italian Film Week Starts November 20

The Embassy of Italy to Bosnia is organizing the Italian Film Week this month in five Bosnian towns. Part of a broader set of events, the Italian Culture Season in Bosnia and Herzegovina, the film week will be organized November 20-27 in Banja Luka, Mostar, Sarajevo, Tuzla and Višegrad.

The screenings in Sarajevo will be hosted by the Meeting Point cinema. Five Italian films will be screened from 21 to 25 November.

Drama “Indivisibili” (2016), directed by Edoardo De Angelis, tells the story of Daisy and Violet, conjoined twin sisters on the verge of turning 18. They sing at weddings, communions and baptisms to support their family. Their life changes when a doctor tells them he can separate them.

Sports drama “Veloce come il vento” (2016), directed by Matteo Rovere, is the story of Giulia, a young GT racing talent. When her life falls apart, her only hope is her brother, a drug addict and former rally champion.

Documentary “L’Uomo che non cambiò la Storia” (2016), directed by Enrico Caria, looks into an episode in the life of Ranuccio Bianchi Bandinelli, an Italian professor of Roman art who got a surprising chance to change the course of history. In 1938, Bandinelli was invited to accompany Mussolini and Hitler as a tour guide and interpreter at Italian museums and archaeological sites. The professor realized that no one was searching him or breathing down his neck, leaving him completely free to plan the tours. The professor faced a dilemma: assassinate the dictators or not?

Drama “Fiore” (2016), directed by Claudio Giovannesi, is a love story in a youth correctional facility. Daphne, arrested for theft, falls in love with Josh, also a young robber. Men and women can not meet in jail and love is forbidden. Daphne and Josh’s relationship is only based on glances from one cell to the other, short conversations through the bars and secret letters.

Drama “Piuma” (2016), directed by Roan Johnson, centers on an average couple whose world is turned upside down by an unexpected pregnancy.

The films are subtitled in B/H/S and English, the organizers said. Admission to the screenings is free.
