Pippo Delbono presents "Vangelo"

Date:

Pippo Delbono presents

On the occasion of the 7th edition of Cinema Made in Italy, the Italian Cultural Institute hosts a talk with Italian actor and director Pippo Delbono, whose film Vangelo will be screened on the fifth day of the festival, Sunday 5 March.

Vangelo, presented at Venice Film Festival in 2016 in the framework of “Giornate degli Autori”, shows Pippo Delbono visiting a centre where refugees come to seek asylum. He shares their everyday lives, between painful memories and an uncertain future. Slowly but surely, the refugees open up to Pippo, telling him their stories. A relationship of trust emerges and gives Pippo the idea to bring them to the stage in a Gospel. Thus fulfilling a promise he made to his mother before she died.

Delbono, in conversation with Monica Capuani and Matteo Marelli, will talk about Vangelo and other his works in cinema and theatre. The event will be concluded by a Q&A session open to the audience.

Admission free, BOOK NOW your seat.
