American Premiere of Giuseppe Tornatore‘s “Baaria”
October 30, 2009
Azzurra presents the American premiere of Giuseppe Tornatore’s film Baaria at USC’s Norris Theater. The following night, the theater will show a retrospective of Tornatore’s other work.
Baaria, which just opened the Venice Film Festival in September, stars Monica Bellucci, Michele Placido, Raoul Bova, Luigi Lo Cascio, Laura Chiatti, Donatella Finocchiaro, and newcomers Francesco Scianna and Margareth Made. This semi autobiographical story examines three generations of life in Tornatore’s native Sicilian village of Bagheria.
