Description: Do not miss this opportunity to enjoy three recent films from Italy (subtitled in English), which highlight diverse genres including drama, documentary, comedy, and set in Rome, Naples and the Veneto region. Each film will be preceded by a brief introduction by Prof. Rala Diakite, of the Humanities Department. The series continues in November with "The Chair of Happiness (La sedia della felicita)" directed by Carlo Mazzacurati. The quest to find a lucky chair with a hidden treasure brings an unlikely couple around the Veneto region trying to persuade the chair owners that they don't really need them. A magician, a greedy priest, industrious immigrated entrepreneurs, a grumpy fishmonger and a shepherd in the alps are some of the characters the couple find in their pursuit of happiness. The film will be screened in the Randall Lecture Hall in the Antonucci Science Complex.
