A number of contemporary Italian films will be available to stream in the coming months.
Having just premiered at the Venice Film Festival, the documentary film was shot over a three-year period along the borders between Syria, Iraq, Kurdistan and Lebanon. Rosi gives voice to a human drama that transcends geographical divisions and time, with encounters and images of the life that is impacted by the continuous tragedy of civil wars, brutal dictatorships, foreign invasions and interference and living in the shadow of ISIS. We hear it in the mournful cries of mothers, in the stammering of permanently wounded children and in a play about the senselessness of politics performed by patients in a psychiatric hospital. Rosi presents us with different stories that go beyond the conflicts.
Pietro Marcello’s long-awaited US premiere of "Martin Eden" will take place on October 16 in theaters and virtual cinemas.
Perhaps to coincide with the release of "Martin Eden," Marcello's acclaimed 2009 film "The Mouth of the Wolf" will open for a virtual theatrical release also on October 16 through Film at Lincoln Center and other theaters.
