Italian Film Festival USA 

When: Sat., Oct. 3, 7 p.m. 2009
The first annual Italian Film Festival USA of Chicago will feature five recent Italian films beginning on Saturday, October 3. with Il vento fa il suo giro (The Wind Blows Round) by Giorgio Diritti (109 min.). The drama was one of five films nominated for the David Donatello award for best film in 2008. It tells the story of a French cheese maker, his wife, and their children as they move to a remote village in Northwestern Italy. The citizens of the hamlet are very suspicious of the new family and before long tensions are simmering and the town quickly turns on them. As things go from bad to worse, even the well-intending village elder proves unable to restore the peace. All films will be shown in Italian with English subtitles at Casa Italia, 1621 N. 39th Avenue, Stone Park. Admission is FREE and open to the general public.
