New Italian Cinema 2017
Dir. Edoardo De Angelis, 2016
Indivisible is an original, innovative story about separation, growth and love, centering around Dasy and Viola (Angela and Marianna Fontana), conjoined twins who, endowed with melodious voices, work as singers at country fairs. They have been doing this at the behest of their parents, who try to profit from their condition by parading them around as a circus act. As the twins reach the age of 18, however, they discover that they could be separated and things are bound to change.
The Cinema and Media Studies Program and the Center for Italian Studies at the University of Pennsylvania, in collaboration with the Consulate General of Italy in Philadelphia and PI-Philly Italian Professionals in Philadelphia, present the 2017 edition of NEW ITALIAN CINEMA. The festival has been curated by Nicola M. Gentili (Penn, Cinema and Media Studies) and aims at showing very recent Italian released feature films in Philadelphia. Films are introduced and discussed with our Penn Italian Ph.D. candidates. This free admission film festival is made possible thanks to the support of New Italian Cinema Events.
All movies presented in Italian with English subtitles.
