In Casarsa a movie night dedicated to Don Pressacco
Between February and March 5 new film proposals at the Pasolini Theater in Casarsa della Delizia thanks to Pro Loco, which continues the review with films by great directors of the caliber of Spielberg and also dedicates an evening with free admission to one of the most important figures of 20th century Friulian culture, don Gilberto Pressacco. “Five appointments with great cinema – he declares Antonio Tesolin, president of APS Pro Casarsa Della Delizia – to taste the taste of films in the room in compliance with health requirements: in a cinema a few steps from your home organized according to the regulations in force thanks to the excellent work of our volunteers, who dedicate their dedicated time to the success of these evenings. In particular, we invite everyone to the free screening of the docufilm Incanto which will also include a moment of presentation of the restoration project of our beloved Glisiut, thanks to the “We can give more” project funded by Friulovest Banca “.
The review resumes, with a new first meeting on Wednesday February 9 at 9 p.m.: the screening of “West Side Story”. This is the Steven Spielberg film, which is the new version of the classic 1957 musical with music by Leonard Bernstein, libretto by Arthur Laurents and lyrics by Stephen Sondheim, which in 1961 gave birth to the film by Robert Wise and Jerome Robbins winner of 10 Oscars. The immortal story is that of Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, set in a modern metropolis divided by racism and prejudice.
Then comes the appointment with “Incanto” scheduled for Thursday, February 17 at 9 p.m. The free viewing of the documentary film will be preceded by a presentation of the virtual restoration of the frescoes in the Church of Santa Croce (Il Glisiut) in Casarsa thanks to the “You can give more” project supported by Friulovest Banca. The vision of the documentary will follow, which is a sort of voyage of discovery through historical research and the original ideas of one of the protagonists of the Friulian cultural scene at the end of the 20th century: Don Gilberto Pressacco. His thought was a kaleidoscope of suggestions, a continuous game of references: from studies in the musical field to the theme of sacred and popular dance, up to the convincing interpretation of the mosaics of the basilica of Aquileia. This is an opportunity to rediscover the charm of the Aquileia basilica and its splendid mosaics at the cinema. Free entry.
On Thursday, February 24 at 9 p.m., the screening of “Un eroe” is scheduled. The film directed by Asghar Farhadi follows the story of Rahim, who is in prison due to a debt he was unable to pay. When it is agreed to grant him a two-day leave, the man tries to persuade the creditor who accuses him to withdraw his complaint, by giving him in exchange part of the sum he owes him. But things don’t go as Rahim had planned. The film was presented in Competition at the 2021 Cannes Film Festival, where it received the Special Grand Jury Prize.
It will then be the turn of “America Latina” scheduled for Thursday March 3 at 9 p.m. This is the third feature film written and directed by Roman twins D’Innocenzo starring Elio Germano. The film is set in Latina and the protagonist is Massimo, a shy dentist who lives a peaceful life in his house, with his wife and two daughters. Everything changes when, more or less by chance, he discovers a terrible secret hidden in the cellar.
The film by Spanish director Fernando León de Aranoa concludes this film installment at Pasolini, “The Perfect Boss” which obtained 1 nomination at the Satellite Awards, 17 nominations for Goya. A cynical and funny story where the common good and solidarity are sacrificed on the altar of profit and interest.
