Directed by Pietro Marcello. This one-of-a-kind new movie, part documentary, part fiction, is a delicate meditation on the history of southern Italy, the transience of beauty, and the cyclical nature of the seasons. Among its elements are a shepherd who protects a local 18th-century palace from ruin, the classic commedia dell’arte character Pulcinella, and a buffalo calf that is led through rural Campania on its way to safety. “A simple, touching tale that seems to contain a whole cosmos of meaning” —NY Times. Cleveland premiere. (Italy/France, 2015, subtitles, color, Blu-ray, 87 min.)
Admission is $9; CMA members, seniors 65 & over, and students $7.
