NEW HORIZONS (Nuovi orizzonti)
A film series at the Cabrillo College Theater, Santa Cruz
The New Horizons film series is a collection of recently released Italian films so new that they have not yet made it to United States theaters or streaming. These films deal with characters at different stages of life leaving home to explore new horizons and diverse parts of Italy, including the Friuli hills, the forests of Sicily, and roadways traversing the peninsula. Sometimes the grass really is greener when the characters meet their destinations. Sometimes it is the journey itself that is transformative. In all cases, the characters in these films gain new perspectives on life as they set their sights on new horizons.
This is a rare opportunity to see these exclusive films in Santa Cruz, Cabrillo, VAPA Bldg 1000, Cabrillo College, Aptos campus, in VAPA building 1000, Art History Forum room 1001. Don’t miss out!
All films are in Italian with English subtitles.
Free admission | RSVP (first come first served, donations welcome at the door)
Organized by the Dante Alighieri Society of Santa Cruz with the patronage of the Italian Cultural Institute of San Francisco.
