LA GUERRA DEI CAFONI

La guerra dei cafoniSunday October 9th at 7 pm, at the Casa del Cinema, the Rome Film Fest and Minimum Fax Media present La guerra dei cafoni, a film directed by Davide Barletti and Lorenzo Conte, inspired by the novel by Carlo D’Amicis (published by Minimum Fax, 2008). The screening will be rigorously prohibited to anyone over the age of 18: the stars of the film (twenty-four minors on the screen for the first time ever), with a group of other teenagers under the age of 18 from the Puglia region, will meet young people of their own age only, to watch – for the first time – the film they have starred in. La guerra dei cafoni is a comedy but also a portrayal of society, a delicate love story, a coming-of-age story, a story about teenagers set in Puglia in the mid-Seventies.

For reservations: media@minimumfax.com (admission to the screening will be prohibited to anyone over the age of 18).

INFERNO

Tom Hanks, Felicity JonesTuesday October 11th at 9 pm in the Mazda Cinema Hall, at the Auditorium Parco della Musica, a preview screening will be held of one of the most highly anticipated films of the movie season: Inferno. Visitors to the Fest will have the chance to see the film a day before it is released in theatres. In this work, Oscar®-winning filmmaker Ron Howard directs the latest best-seller in the series by Dan Brown (Da Vinci Code) about Robert Langdon, “Inferno”, in which the famous symbolist (again played by Tom Hanks) is on the trail this time of a series of clues involving the great poet Dante. When Langdon wakes up with amnesia in an Italian hospital, he puts himself in the hands of Dr. Sienna Brooks (Felicity Jones) to get his memory back. In a race against time that takes them all over Europe, they will attempt to foil a deadly plot.

To be able to marry his beloved, the hero must win the approval of her father, who lives in a small town in Sicily.
