Cinema Italia: Lamerica (1994)

Short url:

WHILE THERE'S WAR THERE'S HOPE [FINCHE' C'E' GUERRA C'E' SPERANZA] (1974) directed by Alberto Sordi is cancelled for technical problems. Apologies for the inconvenience. We will watch together, instead:

LAMERICA [THEAMERICA] (1994) * Directed by Gianni Amelio * 116 min * In Italian with English subtitles * doors open at 20:00, film starts at 20:30. After the film, please engage in sharing comments, ideas, and inspiration with the host(s) of the evening!

In 1991 a ship with 10-20 thousand Albanians came to Bari. They were escaping extreme poverty and a chaotic situation in their country, after the fall of the dictatorship. This film draws from that episode, and tells the story of two different generations of Italians in Albania through the eyes of the two protagonists, whose identities between the two countries make us think about what it means to belong to a nationality, in general, and how fragile is our social status when society around us suddenly collapses. The film also invites us to ask ourselves about the effects of migration in a foreign country, which is more a dream than a reality.
