A.P. GIANNINI – BANK TO THE FUTURE

Monday, October 16 | 7 PM (doors open at 6:30 PM)
Club Fugazi, 678 Green St #3, San Francisco

As part of the celebrations for “Italian Heritage and Culture Month”, directors Valentina Signorelli and Cecilia Zoppelletto present their latest documentary about Amadeo Peter Giannini, the son of Italian immigrants in San Francisco and founder of Bank of America, the man who revolutionized the world of finance by supporting low-income workers during historic economic crises.

From the Gold Rush and the 1906 San Francisco earthquake passing through the Great Depression and World War II. Giannini’s impact extends beyond the creation of America’s largest bank and spans across the building of the Golden Gate Bridge, the financing of the Marshall Plan, as well as Hollywood masterpieces such as Chaplin’s The Kid, Capra’s It Happened One Night, and Disney’s Snow White. Featuring exclusive archive footage, interviews and locations. In collaboration with Istituto Italiano di Cultura – San Francisco.

Q&A with the directors and actor Giorgio Cantarini at the end of the screening.
