As an Oriental saying goes, ‘Moments of crisis are moments of opportunities’. These appear during the celebration of the holiday of Ferragosto on 15 August. That’s when everybody leaves town to have fun. Opportunity knocks on Gianni’s door in the most unexpected way…

Note: Before the main film, we will be showing the Guerilla Film School’s “Sangre Maleva”, (see the link on the top right of this page) with an introduction by the cast (hopefully). As young and inexperienced film-makers, they would be extremely grateful for any feedback you might have, (as “real” cinema-goers) on their achievement.
