New and Classic Cinema Meet Under the Stars of Palermo

Beginning 24 August, debut pieces, showcasing talented new directors and celebrating the history of Italian cinema will be featured at ESCO (allo scoperto). The cinema event, organized by Andrea Inzerillo with Cultural Association SudTitles, will be held at the Complesso Monumentale dello Spasimo di Palermo. The event will conclude  on 6 September with a special tribute to Mario Monicelli and the screening of one of his most acclaimed films, "The Passionate Thief", starring Totò, Anna Magnani and Ben Gazzara.
This event is true marriage of yesterday and today, and a beautiful reflection of how Italian cinema evolves, always holding onto its roots. That unique quality will be celebrated by audiences as they practice the century old tradition of feature films being preceded by short films.

Fuori dal coro by Sergio Misuraca
The event will open with Sergio Misuraca's debut feature film, Fuori dal coro. Other debut films by young filmmakers will follow, such as Eleonora Danco with NCapace, Duccio Chiarini with Short Skin , Francesco Clerici with Hand Gestures and Laura Bispuri with Sworn Virgin. A wide range of diverse films aiming to renew people’s love of cinema will grace the big screen. Some of the films will also be shown with English subtitles, to appeal tourists.

The complete programme of ESCO (allo scoperto) can be found here.
