In collaboration with New Italian Cinema Events (N.I.C.E.), the Department of French and Italian presents a film screening of SOLE (SUN) – A reflection on the choice to love, by the emergent Italian director Carlo Sironi.
SOLE, focusing on the teenage and youth years experienced in a context of marginalization, loneliness and cynicism. The director accurately describes the feeling of claustrophobia, the sense of disorientation and discomfort due to the lack of roots and intercultural communication. In a society often unable to offer a model of human connections, this film shows the importance of small daily gestures, of how spontaneously one becomes attached, caring and responsible, and how one can find a way to redeem oneself by considering the future as an alternative to a life devoid of values and substance, a possibility to glimpse new opportunities.
The film will be available Saturday, November 14th and Sunday, November 15th, 2020. In Italian with English subtitles.
Following the screening, join the Q&A with director, Carlo Sironi, on Thursday, November 19, 2020 at 4pm via Zoom.

Open to the University community.
