2022 marks the eighth consecutive year of fruitful collaboration between the Italian Cultural Institute and the Casula Powerhouse Arts Centre, the cultural hub of Liverpool City Council.

A collaboration that is expressed with the organization of film series that have contemporary Italian production as their focus.

This year, the series is entitled Another Italy: Stories, relationships and emotions in Italian cinema at the beginning of the millennium with a clear reference to the now consolidated choice of proposing a series of feature films that can give a vision of our country at the dawn of second decade of this third millennium.

Italian-Australian singer Joe Fimmano and DJs Jay Katz & Miss Death will also perform during the evening, presenting a quirky Italo-lounge set.

L’intervallo (The Interval) (Leonardo Di Costanzo, 2012, 90’)

Cast: Alessio Gallo, Salvatore Ruocco, Francesca Riso

Naples: a girl and a boy in a huge abandoned building. She, Veronica, has snubbed the camorra boss in her neighbourhood, but it’s unclear exactly what she has done to be locked up in such a frightening place. He, Salvatore, has nothing to do with the camorra, but theyintervallo interna have forced him to play the gaoler. As the hours go by and the hood fails to appear, Veronica gradually leaves her initial hostility towards Salvatore behind and starts to talk with him and lead him on. There follows a series of shy approaches and advances. The relationship between the two changes and it’s as if they were inside a bubble suspended in mid-air. But they are choked by fear as Veronica’s punishment could arrive at any minute and it’s sure to be terrible. At the end of the day, the camorristi who turn up are different from the ones they expected—they’re even more violent and ruthless.
