Due to unforeseen circumstances, filmmaker Franco Maresco is unable to attend screenings of his films at Indiana University Cinema this April, as previously scheduled. Though we are disappointed that he will not be in attendance, we are excited to still be able to share his work with our audiences. Producer Rean Mazzone, from Ila Palma–Dream Film, will still be present for question-and-answer sessions after each screening.

This film narrates the life and the work of Franco Scaldati, born on April 13, 1943, in Montelepre, Sicily, and who died on June 1, 2013, in Palermo, Sicily. He was one of the most significant European figures as actor and writer of the second half of the 20th century. His works stand for radicalism and a strong commitment to a conception of theater far from traditional patterns. His unique representation of marginal and forgotten humanity on the verge of losing its essence remains unmatched. In Italian with English subtitles. (2K DCP Presentation)
