Le Quattro Volte + short

7pm Sunday 1st April 2012

Dir. Michelangelo Frammartino / 2010 / Italian - subtitle | 88 mins | U

A beautiful combination of an old man's struggle to continue his goathearding life; the birth of a baby goats; a tree which becomes charcoal; and the lives of the simple people in the hills of Calabria. We see the stages of life through beautiful imagery at times dramatic and at times comical.
