MOVIE: Shun Li and the Poet (Three Rivers Film Festival)

Shun Li and the Poet
Andrea Segre | Italy | 2011 | 100min


Winner of “Best First Feature” in the London Film Fest, this tender story begins with Shun Li working in a textile factory near Rome. She's slowly paying off the broker who brought her from China to Italy, while trying to save money to bring her young son over. Transferred to work as a bartender in a pub that's a hangout for local fishermen, one day she meets Bepi, a handsome old Slav immigrant nicknamed "The Poet." A delicate friendship grows between them, but gossip soon threatens their innocent relationship. Variety calls the film “exquisite” and “rapturous.”

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
