Film: Baaria (English & Sicilian & Italian with English subtitles)

The first Italian film to open the Venice Film Festival in almost 20 years, Baarìa is also one of the most expensive films ever made in Italy – a sprawling epic in the tradition of old Italian cinema with an Ennio Morricone score to match.

The father of the family is a hardworking shepherd. His mischievous son Peppino grows up with a fierce resentment of the landowners whose interests they must serve. Gradually, we move through the Fascist era to the post-war period. Peppino (earnestly played by Francesco Scianna) may have only the most rudimentary education, but he has a burning sense of injustice. He becomes more and more involved in politics, joining the Communist Party and agitating for workers' rights. A man of strong ideals, Peppino is in danger of losing sight of the most important thing in his life, his own family.
