Film: Italy, love it or leave it

04.16.2015 7:30 pm

Italy, love it or leave it
Gustav Hofer, Luca Ragazzi I 80 min. I Italian w/ Eng. subtitles

Presented by San Diego Italian Film Festival.

Luca and Gustav are two young Italians who have witnessed the exodus of many of their friends to Berlin, London and Barcelona – creative, talented people who don’t see a future in their country. They’re fed up with the high cost of living, no job security, the feudal university system, reactionary attitudes and indifference to human rights, the clear sense that you don’t get anywhere just on merit. And they are tired of a country that appears to be mired in quicksand.

As they contemplate their future in Italy, the friends give themselves 6 months to see if they can fall in love with their country again and begin a journey across their boot-shaped land in an old Fiat 500, in search of emblematic stories, anecdotes, people.

Tickets: $10 ($8 SDIFF & MOPA Members/Students/Military) Tickets available at door.
