La Mafia Uccide Solo d’Estate/The Mafia Kills Only in Summer
(7 PM)

Pierfrancesco Diliberto (a renowned TV host and political comedian, better known as Pif) wrote, directed, and stars in this subversive, irreverent feature debut about Arturo, a young boy whose obsession with the Mafia’s casual presence in his city of Palermo surpasses even his passion for Flora, the beautiful schoolmate who remains his main love interest until adulthood. Pif uses Arturo’s unrequited love story as the vehicle to narrate the most tragic events in Italy’s recent history, starting with the Cosa Nostra’s criminal actions in Sicily in the ’70s, which soon spread through the country (encompassing the barbaric murder of judges Falcone and Borsellino, an event that Pif handles with astounding boldness). THE MAFIA KILLS ONLY IN SUMMER spans 20 years of a life filled with passion and laughter and is a brave and intelligent dark comedy with powerful message.

Un Giorno da Italiani/ Italy in a Day (9 PM)

A documentary Out of Competition at the 71st Venice Film Festival.
Based on Kevin Macdonald’s concept for “Life in a Day,” Oscar-winning director Gabriele Salvatores has created a touching mosaic of life in Italy during one day; October 26th, 2013.
Italians were asked to record and send in videos via their smartphones or video cameras. The result is a collage of 632 videos selected among the 44,197 sent from all over Italy exposing everyday Italians’ hopes and fears. This experiment portrays Italy through the eyes of Italians, going inside their homes and letting them decide what to show and share. The engaging insights range from the birth of a child to the breathtaking eruption of the Mount Etna volcano all the way to the view of Earth of an Italian Astronaut.
