FILM: ITALIAN FILM SERIES: L'INTREPIDO
7 Sep 2017 | 7.30pm - 9.15pm
L'Intrepido was originally screened in the main competition section of the 70th Venice International Film Festival and the Special Presentation Section of the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.
This story paints the portrait of the working world through the journey of a middle-aged man who attempts to find self-respect and meaning by doing every possible job. The core of the story features a man (Antonio Albanese) who remains defiantly positive regardless of the challenges that he encounters. Beautifully choreographed by Gianni Amelio, this satirical narrative pays homage to Chaplinesque films and echoes Italian classical cinema.
