CINEMA: Happy as Lazzaro
Monday 13th May, 2019 - 20:00€6 – €9
In an isolated mountain community, overseer Marchesa has neglected to tell the villagers that sharecropping has in fact been made illegal – so they continue to work for almost nothing. Lazzaro is an innocent and kind teenager who’s always given some of the village’s most thankless tasks.
In her follow up to The Wonders, Alice Rohrwacher has crafted a thoughtful, surprising magical-realist fable that’s quite unlike anything else. While deeply attuned to the issues facing modern Italy, Rohrwacher never forgets the characters at the centre of this strange but wonderful drama.
