Screening of the film "Flying Lessons" (2007, 106 min), directed by Francesca Archibugi



Screening of the film

in Italian with English subtitles

Pollo (Miglio Risi) and Curry (Tom Angel Kurumathy), inseparable 18 year-old friends, have both failed their last year of high school. Curry was adopted as a baby from India and guilt trips his family into letting him take a much-dreamed-of trip to his birthplace with his best friend, who comes from a rigid, Jewish family. India, however, is not what they expected. Finding it poor and dirty, they get robbed. Curry is taken for a native (he even gets arrested by the police during a demonstration), while Pollo gets sick and meets a western doctor (Giovanna Mezzogiorno), ten years older than him, whom he falls desperately in love with. She takes them both to the small outpost where she works as a volunteer, and they finally find the reason for their trip: Curry discovers his past, while Pollo finds his future.This event is free and open to the public.RSVP
