Ermanno Olmi and Pier Paolo Pasolini Masterpieces at the Eastman Museum
Ermanno Olmi's 1978 film, The Tree of the Wooden Clogs, will be shown as part of the Labor Film Series. The film reflects Olmi's deep understanding of the rhythms of life and labor of northern Italy’s peasants and his commitment to them. Winner of the Palme d’Or, the film depicts the seasonal cycle of work on a small farm in late nineteenth-century Lombardy, capturing the social structure and events that shape the characters, portrayed by non-actors. The screening will take place on Friday, October 18 at 7:30 p.m.
Both screenings will take place at the newly renovated Dryden Theatre. Click here to visit the Eastman Museum online.
