Cinema Italiano: The Sicilian Girl

For this installment of Bowers' Cinema Italiano, a periodic screening of artistic, intelligent films straight from the land of pasta, the museum presents 2009's The Sicilian Girl. This fascinating true story about 17-year-old Rita Atria who testified against the "family business" after two members of her family are murdered, follows the dramatic tale of what happened when a young girl bravely broke the Mafia's code of silence. Directed by Marco Amenta, the film is actually condemned by Atria's family—but endorsed by critics, marked by Amenta's David di Donatello nomination for Best New Director. Shown in Italian with English subtitles; advance reservations are required.
Sun., Nov. 18, 1:30 p.m., 2012
