Preceded by the short film, Dear Mr. Shakespeare.
Once upon a time, villagers in a tiny hill town in Tuscany came up with a remarkable way to confront their issues: they turned their lives into a play. Every summer, their piazza became their stage and residents of all ages played a part – the role of themselves. Monticchiello’s annual tradition has attracted worldwide attention and kept the town together for 50 years, but with an aging population and a future generation more interested in Facebook than farming, the town’s 50th anniversary performance just might be its last.
Featuring gorgeous cinematography capturing the visual splendor of rural Italy, Spettacolo, from filmmakers Jeff Malmberg and Chris Shellen (co-directors of the acclaimed 2010 documentary, Marwencol) tells the story of Teatro Povero dii Monticchiello, interweaving episodes from its past with its modern-day process as the villages turn a series of devastating blows into a new play about the end of their world. (Dir. by Jeff Malmberg & Chris Shellen, 2017, USA, in Italian with English subtitles, 91 mins., Not Rated)
