tempo instabile posterA lieto fine - Happy ending

2021 marks the 7th consecutive year of the Italian Cultural Institute’s fruitful collaboration with the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, i.e. the cultural hub of the Liverpool City Council. A collaboration that is expressed with the organization of the screening of movies focussing on contemporary Italian productions.

This year’s movie series is called A lieto fine - Happy ending, with a clear reference to the choice of "light" feature films, not particularly challenging, which want to herald a gradual resumption of all economic and cultural activities, which have unavoidably slowed down and/or have been confined to private settings due to the Covid pandemic, which finally seems to be slowing down its impact on the social life of the population.

Cast: Luca Zingaretti, John Turturro, Carolina Crescentini
