Description

Introduction by Joseph Sannicandro, PhD candidate in Cultural Studies at UMN

In the summer of 1975, in a village on the eastern coast of Puglia, a war is rekindled between the sons of the wealthy and the children of local fishermen, shepherds, and farmers: the so-called cafoni or “bumpkins.” Based on a novel by the same name, the film uses childhood skirmishes over territory and bragging rights to tackle historical class divisions that are relevant still relevant, even today. However, out of a tragically comic misunderstanding, the leader of the rich kids declares war and quickly learns that his view of the world needs an update. A film about childhood and class that revises our concepts of “good” and “evil,” this adaptation is at once a love story, a training course, and a fairy tale.
