Il Mio Viaggio in Italia
In this moving film, Martin Scorsese traces his love for Italian cinema back to his earliest childhood memories of growing up in Little Italy; and seeing his grandparents weep as they watched images of their homeland, devastated by war, in Rossellini's Paisan. Scorsese takes us through the films he loves best, some of them renowned classics like Fellini's 8 1/2, some of them lesser known or more difficult films like Blasetti's The Iron Crown, or Rossellini's Voyage to Italy. IL MIO VIAGGIO IN ITALIA is at once a careful analysis, an historical investigation, and the spiritual autobiography of a great artist.
This four-hour cinematic event is presented for one day only on Sunday, June 9th, from 11:00am-12:30 pm and then from2:00 pm-4:00 pm after a lunch break. The Newport International Film Festival is thrilled and honored to offer the Italian-American community an opportunity to view this one-of-a-kind documentary. For more information call Eva Butterworth at (401) 743-1308.
