Spettacolo Film Screening Guelph Film Festival

EVENT DESCRIPTION

The Guelph Film festival presents the docuemtary Spettacolo:

Several decades ago, a tiny town perched on a hill in Tuscany came up with a unique solution to the problems they were facing. They got together and worked on turning their lives into a play, allowing them to creatively and openly talk about issues and create resolutions. The singular experiment soon became a tradition. Every year, for the past 50 years, their piazza becomes their stage and villagers from 6 to 90 play a part - the role of themselves. In this village theatre isn’t just art, it’s a way of life.


This film is followed by a concert by the Timber Timbre, a Canadian band with members hailing from Toronto and Montreal. Their swampy, folksy music suggests a flare for the dramatic, making the perfect pairing for a documentary about the limits of drama. Tickets for a combined screening or just the band are available through a link at guelphfilmfestival.ca
