Italian cinema arrives in Helsinki with Emma Dante, Gianfranco Rosi and Francesco Cannavà.
Notturno di Gianfranco Rosi

The family tale by Emma Dante with ‘The Macaluso Sisters’, the civic commitment of Gianfranco Rosi and his latest documentary ‘Notturno’, shot in the war zones in Syria, Lebanon and Iran. And finally, the burning and still taboo theme of lovegivers, the theme of Francesco Cannavà’s ‘Because of My Body’.

These are the titles of the Italian films featured in the 32nd edition of the Espoo Ciné International Film Festival, which takes place in Helsinki from 23 to 29 August 2021.
