Film Screening, The Wonders (2014)

December 9 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

The Wonders (110 minutes) is a coming-of-age epic by Alice Rohrwacher, who based the film on her childhood memories of working with her three sisters on their parents’ Tuscan bee farm. This fantastical tale is told from the oldest daughter’s point-of-view and reveals her adventures of entering her family’s honey into a TV competition called Countryside Wonders. The film won the Grand Prix award at the 2014 Cannes Film Festival.

This film will be presented as part of KinoSaito’s free-admission Fall 2022 Italian Film Series cosponsored by Verplanck’s Italian heritage community on Fridays, October 14, November 11, and December 9, starting at 6 pm. For all film shows, guest speaker Michael Cramer, PhD, Sarah Lawrence College Professor of Film History, will present pre-screening introductions and facilitate post-screening discussions. Dr. Cramer specializes in teaching Italian Cinema History and Cinema in the Digital Age, among other courses. He is the author of the book, Utopian Television: Roberto Rossellini, Peter Watkins, and Jean-Luc Godard Beyond Cinema (2017). Dr. Cramer earned his PhD, MA, MPhil at Yale University.

This film series was generously cosponsored by Let It Shine, in celebration of the Paradise Restaurant, Angie’s Delicatessen, and 100 years of the Mt. Carmel Feast; Society of Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, in celebration of its 100th anniversary; and the O’Mara & Carpentieri Funeral Home. All presentations are free, but due to limited seating, require advanced registrations.
