In conjunction with Cultura Italiano and Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre
Fri 24 Nov 7:30 PM
Santa Lucia, directed by Marco Chiappetta in 2021 is the last film in this year's Italian Film Series. After living in Argentina for 40 years, Roberto, an author who has gone blind, returns to Naples when his mother dies.
With his brother Lorenzo, a musician manqué, he takes a trip through his memories in the city of his childhood, which he can no longer see but only perceive through his remaining senses, his memories, and his imagination, in search of the tragic reason behind his departure.
What happens if, after a long exile, a man returns to his hometown, to the places of his life, and can no longer see them? How can a blind man distinguish between reality and his dreams and memories?
This film is in Italian with English subtitles
