Italian Move Night "Cinema Paradiso"

At CCI office, 1510 Hertel Ave

The movie is free, donations accepted

Cinema Paradiso is a 1988 Italian film, written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore. It was a critical and box-office success and it is regarded by many as a classic. Winning the Academy Award for best foreign film in 1989, the film is often credited with reviving Italy's film industry, which later produced "Mediterraneo" and "Life is beautiful".

Salvatore, a successful director, returns to his Sicily after 30 years, for the funeral of his dear friend Alfredo. His memory brings him back to his childhood, where Alfredo's charismatic figure led him to adolescence, transmitting his love for cinema.

An outstanding split of history and culture seen in a movie theatre, where the way to consume cinema is now lost: when the priests censured kisses and the audience laughed and cried with the movies of Toto' and John Ford. The sweet-bitter succession of events creates moods and atmospheres that give rise to deep emotions.

Our space is limited to 30 people, please RSVP to attend by emailing ccibuffalo@gmail.com or calling 832-2653
