2018 FALL ITALIAN FILM & LECTURE SERIES
September 9, 2018
This festival favorite is, according to Variety, "more than just a topical issue movie cashing in on recent scandals, but a taut, stylish drama that addresses shady practices in the pharmaceutical industry. (It is) enriched by standout performances, a tight script and editing that expertly drive the tension forward." Director Morabito was nominated for a Nastro d'Argento award for Best Story, 2014. 110 minutes/Free

La vita in comune (The Ark of Disperata)
Director: Edoardo Winspeare, 2017
Pati and his brother Angiolino dreamed of becoming the Mafia bosses of Capo di Leuca, when Pati discovers his love of poetry while doing jail time. His teacher, mentor and inspiration, Filippo (also the beleaguered mayor of Disperata) and the brothers use the encounter with art to change the town's direction. A sweet and funny film, in which writer/director Winspeare employs his pugliesi friends and neighbors as actors for an authentic and genuine feel. 110 minutes/Admission charge NOTE SCREENING LOCATION, NOT AT CABRILLO!

Andrea (played by handsome Raul Bova) enjoys his never-ending string of one-night stands, and his career in product placement for films and TV is skyrocketing. Everything changes, though, when a non-standard teenager shows up and claims to be his daughter. Dante Alighieri Film Series favorite Edoardo Leo not only wrote and directed this comedic and touching film, but plays veteran lead actor Bova's roommate and underachieving side kick. The film was nominated for several prestigious awards, including best comedy, best original song, and received two best actor nominations. 109 minutes/Free
