The journey as a metaphor for film. A journey through Italy to discover its territories but also the travelling Italians who, over the decades, have migrated abroad in search of new opportunities.
- ‘The Mayor of Rione Sanità’ by Mario Martone, a journey through Naples and the Vesuvian countryside inspired by the work of the same name by Eduardo de Filippo.
The screening of the film will take place on 14 June at the historic Cinema Uránia Nemzeti Filmszinház, as part of the ‘Viaggio in Italia‘ (Journey through Italy) review, which includes 14 other Italian films, including “The Garden of the Finzi-Continis” and “Marianna Ucrìa”. Martone’s film, winner of the Francesco Pasinetti Prize and the Leoncino D’Oro Prize at the 2019 Venice Film Biennale, will be screened in its original language, with Hungarian subtitles.
- ‘Itaker – Italians Not Allowed’ by Toni Trupia, which addresses the emigration of Italians to Germany in the 1960s, starring Francesco Scianna, Michele Placido and Monica Barladeanu.
The event will be streamed on the Távmozi platform on 17 June. At the end of the screening there will be a video chat on Zoom with the director Toni Trupia who will talk about the process of the film’s creation behind-the-scenes.
