Spring Italian Film Series in Aptos

Come over, with friends or solo, to Cabrillo College's Art History Forum room for this free event sponsored by the Dante Alighieri Society of Santa Cruz, held under the auspices of Instituto Italiano di Cultura, San Francisco. 

This month's selection is:
Io non ho paura (I'm Not Scared) 
Director: Gabriele Salvatores, 2003. Based on Niccol Ammaniti's successful 2001 Italian novel Io non ho paura, the award winning film is set during Italy's anni di piombo, a time riddled with terrorism and kidnapping in the 1970s. The film was beautifully shot in Basilicata and Puglia, the cinematographer taking advantage of the quiet pastoral landscapes of Southern Italy. The child actors, many local kids headed up by previously unknown Giuseppe Cristiano, own the film. 108 minutes All films in Italian with English subtitles
Logan Walker film lecturer, SJSU, will introduce and field questions about all films. This a no-host event but look for some familiar faces.

    I have never been to Aptos. Hear Cabrillo College campus is right on the ocean and is beautiful. Can't wait to meet new folks and have a good time
