International Film Festival
Thursday, December 07, 2017, 07:00pm

The Fall International Film Festival concludes on Thursday, December 7th. The library will screen Mia Madre (2015) at 7:00 p.m.

Acclaimed Italian auteur Nanni Moretti finds comedy and pathos in the story of Margherita, a harried film director (Margherita Buy) trying to juggle the demands of her latest movie and a personal life in crisis. Mia Madre premiered at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival and won the Ecumenical Jury prize. Directed, co-written and co-produced by Nanni Moretti (who plays one of the major roles.) Also starring John Turturro. In Italian, English and French with English subtitles. 106 minutes. Rated R.

Funding for the film program has been made possible in part by the NJ State Council on the Arts, Department of State, a partner agency of the National Endowment for the Arts, through a grant administered by the Union County Office of Cultural and Heritage Affairs and by the Friends of the Springfield Free Public Library.
