Department of French and Italian; New Italian Cinema Events (N.I.C.E.)
In collaboration with New Italian Cinema Events (N.I.C.E.) the Department of French and Italian presents a Q&A with emergent Italian director Carlo Sironi. The event will be in English and via Zoom.
SOLE, focuses on the teenage and youth years experienced in a context of marginalization, loneliness and cynicism. The director describes the feeling of claustrophobia, the sense of disorientation and discomfort due to the lack of roots and intercultural communication. In a society often unable to offer a model of human connections, this film shows the importance of small daily gestures, of how spontaneously one becomes attached, caring and responsible, and how one can find a way to redeem oneself by considering the future as an alternative to a life devoid of values and substance, a possibility to glimpse new opportunities.
Please view the film SOLE (SUN) before the discussion. The film will be available Saturday, November 14th and Sunday, November 15th, 2020 in Italian with English subtitles.
Please visit the Department of French and Italian website for more details.
Open to the University community.
Support for this event has been provided in part by Princeton University’s Lewis Center for the Arts, the Humanities Council, the Program in Italian Studies, and the University Center for Human Values.
