          • Available

          Bold and dazzling, acclaimed writer/director Pietro Marcellos multi award-winning drama MARTIN EDEN provocatively transposes Jack Londons 1909 novel about a self-taught and outspoken writer out of the American West and into a pivotal moment in Italys pre-war history. Thirty-somet...hing sailor Martin Eden (remarkable newcomer Luca Marinelli) is inspired to remake himself as a novelist, following a chance encounter with the sophisticated, wealthy Elena (the luminous Jessica Cressy). She immediately becomes not only the object of his passionate affections, but also the symbol of the status Martin aspires to achieve. Pursuing his newfound social and literary obsessions, Martin abandons his friends and working-class roots without hesitation, but eventually undergoes a political awakening that triggers yet another change. A passionate and enthralling cinematic achievement in the tradition of Rossellini and Visconti, Pietro Marcellos enveloping and superbly-mounted fable interweaves historical footage with an extraordinary production design of his own. The films ideas are universal and timeless: the hypocrisy of class, the disillusionment of ideologies, the limits of romanticism and realism, and the question of what it means, ultimately, to be an individual.

          THE CATALANOTTI METHOD - Carmelo Catalanotti was murdered by a stab to the chest, but this murder if only for the strange composure of the body and the absence of blood, immediately presents something strange. Montalbano soon discovers that the victim was a loan shark, albeit in ...a fair way or at least not particularly greedy. But Catalanotti was not just a usurer, he was above all a fervent and original theatre artist, soul and founder of Trinacriarte, a very active amateur theater company from Vigta. The Trinacriarte is not a simple amateur company, a good many of its members are literally possessed, if not possessed by the passion for the theater. Carmelo Catalanotti was the guru of this group, a guru who knew how to be brilliant, but also cruel and sadistic. So much so that Montalbano realizes that it is precisely in his tragic art and his very personal and disturbing Method in which the solution lies to the mystery of his death.

          • Available

          The first Spanish-language production in nearly 17 years from Oscar-winning writer/director Alejandro Amenbar (The Sea Inside, The Others, Agora), WHILE AT WAR is a powerful and hugely resonant historical drama set in the first months of the Spanish Civil War, depicting how the c...ountry inexorably slid into nearly four decades of fascism under dictator Francisco Franco. Its July, 1936. Nationalist forces take to the streets of Salamanca, challenging the authority of the democratically elected Second Spanish Republic, and arresting the citys mayor for the crime of being Republican. However, the esteemed Miguel de Unamuno (Karra Elejalde) author, professor, and rector, pays the uprising little mind: for all his wisdom and experience, this great man of letters doesnt believe that his country is under imminent threat. Initially defying his friends and family by publicly supporting the rebellion, its not until his colleagues are rounded up that Miguel begins to reconsider his principles, hoping he can exert his considerable influence to bring reason before its too late Nominated for 17 Spanish Academy (Goya) Awards in 2020, including Best Picture, Director and Actor, Amenbars deeply intelligent and spectacularly mounted drama depicts a nation split between those compelled by egalitarianism, and others driven by reactionary visions of how to make Spain great again. WHILE AT WAR sounds a powerful alarm about the complexity of patriotism, the perils of neutrality and how compassion and dialogue are too-often fragile virtues.
