ONE NIGHT ONLY!
SUNDAY, MARCH 2 – 8:00 PM
Spectacle is proud to present the best of the La Guarimba International Film Festival!
La Guarimba International Film Festival is a socio-cultural project in Amantea, a small town in the south of Italy.
The festival was created by a group of artists from different places of the world who believe in the benefit of working together for others. Thanks to this we had cleaned and reopened the Arena Sicoli, an old outdoor movie theater with 900 seats, to show the official selection.
The Festival was born to bring the cinema to the people and the people to the cinema, with the aim of giving back the magic of the cinematography to the town’s inhabitants, to spread the work of local and international filmmakers and also to foster the culture of Calabria.
AND NOW the festival is coming to THE SPECTACLE!
THE PROGRAM (75 min.):
Trailer of #AboutTheResistance, the documentary about the festival, and about cinema as an act of resistance.
