FILM: ITALIAN FILM SERIES: LEOPARDI

3 Aug 2017 | 7.30pm - 9.50pm

Martone's cinematic masterpiece allows viewers to see the richness and sorrow experienced in Giacomo Leopardi's short, yet fascinating life. Leopardi challenged familial responsibility and social conventions through his desire to travel beyond Recanati. His inquisitive nature enabled him to reflect further on the impact of unhappiness in human experiences. This biographic tale showcases the desire for growth, the excitement of youthful freedom and the sorrow of unrequited love.
