Description

Introduction by Peter Schilling, Film Society of MSP

Once upon a time, villagers in a tiny hill town in Tuscany decided to confront their issues by turning their lives into a play. Every summer, the piazza becomes their stage and residents of all ages play a part: themselves. Monticchiello’s annual tradition has attracted worldwide attention and kept the town together for 50 years, but with an aging population and a new generation more interested in Facebook than farming, the town’s most recent performance just might be its last.

Spettacolo tells the story of Teatro Povero di Monticchiello, interweaving episodes from its past with its modern-day process as the villagers turn a series of devastating blows into a new play about the end of their world.
