Chicago International Film Festival - Virtual Screening of "Notturno", directed by Gianfranco Rosi, 2020, 100 minutes

Presented by the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago

SYNOPSIS:
From the Oscar-nominated director of Fire at Sea, this lyrical tour-de-force captures the peoples and places ravaged along the borders between Syria, Iraq, Kurdistan, and Lebanon. The mournful dirges of mothers, plaintive patients enacting a play in a psychiatric hospital, the grace of female Peshmerga warriors, a lone boatman navigating waters against the backdrop of the blood-red dawn—the film’s beautifully composed vignettes capture the signs of violence and war, all the while celebrating the perseverance of its survivors. Notturno is both a vivid snapshot of the Middle East and humanity as it struggles to come out of the darkness.

“For those who prefer the rough edges smoothed over by refined framing, exceptional camerawork and bewitching local music, Notturno is a reliable window onto the Middle East mess” –Hollywood Reporter

LANGUAGE: Arabic, Kurdish with subtitles
