Vado Verso Dove Vengo



Vado Verso Dove Vengo

UPDATE: The filmmakers will NOT be in attendance at the Italian American Heritage Foundation for the screening but they will be available through Skype for the post-screening discussion.

We thank you for your understanding.

More information
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has specified that all those arriving from Italy should undergo a voluntary self-isolation period of 14 days to monitor their health and avoid possible infections from COVID-19. Given these precautions the filmmakers will not be in attendance at the screening.

Join Luigi Vitelli and Antonio Imbesi as they present via Skype their documentary Vado Verso Dove Vengo and the video installation entitled I'm Going Where I Come From. Both works investigate and compose, from an anthropological point of view, passages from personal stories of Lucanians who emigrated abroad (both old and new emigration), and put them in relation with the stories of those who remain in Basilicata, to make the two communities recognized in a practice of choral construction of new meanings of their places of origin.

Post-screening discussion with the director, project manager Antonio Imbesi, and art director/writer Luigi Vitelli. Discussion led by Evelyn Ferraro (Santa Clara University) and Laura E. Ruberto (Berkeley City College).

The screening will take place at the Italian American Heritage Foundation in San Jose, with the support of the Italian Cultural Institute and the Leonardo da Vinci Society of San Francisco.

5:00-6:15pm | Documentary screening
