Cinema nello Spazio - Club di Film Virtuale!

Online event

<< NOTE: You must RSVP in advance via the 'Attend' button in order to see the Zoom meeting link. >> Cari amici! You are cordially invited to enjoy our Italian film club - online! Please watch the recommended movie on your own schedule BEFORE the Meetup gathering. Then we will come together to discuss the film - our observations, thoughts and feelings. Second Spring (2016) Seconda primavera Watch on Tubi: https://tubitv.com/movies/507310/second-spring Other ways to watch: https://www.justwatch.com/us/movie/seconda-primavera Film details: https://www.soundviewmediapartners.com/second-spring-seconda-primavera/ Info on IMDB: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt3222818/ "The young Hikma reminds Andrea of his wife, who passed away in unclear circumstances. Teaching him how to tend to his villa's garden, Hikma enables him to take up his life again." Like all of our previous gatherings, we will have great conversations and meet amazing people. Feel free to share personal stories that relate to the film based on your travels, work and fascinating lives. This will be lots more fun than staying home alone and social distancing... guaranteed! We will provide the teleconferencing service. Just BYOB... BYO snacks... and login from the comfort of your home or wherever you happen to be. To fully enjoy the film discussion, you should have a fairly good level of Italian language skill. We hope to keep up the online film club often until the health crisis subsides and experts indicate that it is safe to engage in more in-person group activities. We welcome your suggestions for films. Please share any ideas you may have about this new type of meeting format. Any of you are welcome to organize a virtual party for our group whenever you wish to act as host. I will gladly assist you with the logistics. Ci vediamo! Ci sentiamo! A presto! Details for online conferencing... * To join the Zoom meeting, click the Meetup online link in any browser. * You may connect from your mobile device, laptop, PC, etc. If you have problems connecting on one device, you may wish to try another. * The first time you join, please link to https://zoom.us/test so you can install the app and adjust your camera, speakers and microphone. * You should always test out the app and your audio and video before entering the group space. * Try to call in from a location with good lighting and with minimal background noise and distractions. * You can hear better and be heard more clearly if you use earphones and/or a headset microphone. * Mute your microphone whenever you are not speaking. * As a guest, you do not have to create your own conferencing account. * If you wish, you can select a Zoom virtual background (based on any photo). While the virtual background is active, you are visible but your home or work space is not. This works somewhat like a TV or movie 'green screen'. You may appear to be virtually at the beach, hiking, in Italy, etc. Fun!
