The Italian Cultural Institute in Rabat will pay tribute this afternoon to Italian directors Paolo and Vittorio Taviani, screening the film "La masseria delle allodole".
The film will be screened in the Institute in the context of the "Storie" (Stories) cycle, dedicated to Italian cinema. The Taviani brothers have won a David di Donatello, the Italian version of the Oscar, for their film "Cesare deve morire", performed by prisoners serving long penalties in Italian jails.
"La masseria delle allodole" is the eighth film of the two Italian directors. It was released in May five years ago and is based on the novel with the same title written by Antonia Arslan. The film tells the story of an Armenian family that flees from the genocide by the Turks. The cast includes Paz Vega, Alessandro Preziosi, Amgela Molina and Tcheky Karyo.
