Cinema Made in Italy
March 7th-11th, 2018
Ciné Lumière, London

The eighth edition of CINEMA MADE IN ITALY will launch at the Ciné Lumière in South Kensington on Wednesday March 7th, with Paolo Taviani’s World War II drama RAINBOW (Una Questione Privata) starring Luca Marinelli and Valentina Bellé. In addition to eight new Italian productions, the 2018 programme also includes the 1977 classic A SPECIAL DAY (Una Giornata Particolare), directed by the late maestro Ettore Scola and starring Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni.

Highlights to look forward to this year include Andrea Pallaoro’s heart-rending drama HANNAH, which earned Charlotte Rampling the Best Actress Award at the 2017 Venice International Film Festival. Other titles in the line-up which premiered in Venice are the wildly enjoyable musical LOVE AND BULLETS (Ammore e Malavita) by Antonio and Marco Manetti; the slick and creative animation film CINDERELLA THE CAT (Gatta Cenerentola) by Alessandro Rak; and Sebastiano Riso’s impressive second feature UNA FAMIGLIA.

Leonardo di Costanzo, who presented his award-winning film The Interval in London in 2012, will be making a welcome return with his latest feature THE INTRUDER (L’Intrusa), which screened in Directors’ Fortnight at last year’s Cannes International Film Festival. Sergio Castellitto’s social melodrama FORTUNATA also premiered in Cannes, in Un Certain Regard, landing Jasmine Trinca with the section’s Best Actress Award for her gritty performance as a poverty-stricken single mother. Lucia Mascino also delivers a stunning performance in STORIES OF LOVE THAT CANNOT BELONG TO THIS WORLD (Amori Che Non Sanno Stare al Mondo), by acclaimed director Francesca Comencini.
