Description

Once upon a time there was a tiny hill town in Tuscany that found a remarkable way to confront their issues - they turned their lives into a play. Every summer for the past 50 years, their piazza becomes their stage and villagers play a part - the role of themselves. Every issue the town has faced in its history - their near annihilation by Nazis, the disappearance of their farming heritage, the commercialization of their land - has been dramatized and debated by the villagers in the center of town.

A lovely and elegiac documentary from the filmmakers of Marwencol.

Co-presented with Sffilm and the Italian Cultural Institute
