RIVER TIBER, THE (TEVERE)
Co-presented by the Italian Cultural Institute
THE RIVER TIBER (TEVERE) (Italy / France, 2007, 52 min.)
Rarely does one pay attention to the rivers crossing large cities. Built like a “road movie,” this film highlights the striking contrast between Rome’s abandoned riverbanks and the frantic life of ancient times. The viewer collects diverse perspectives on the city through the remains of industrial archaeology in districts being renewed and by touring spots that inspired the writer Pasolini’s early novels. Directed by Catia Ott. Photography by Pino Di Giambattista Editing by Guillaume Maurice.
Introduced by Rita Venturelli, Director, Italian Cultural Institute. Discussion with filmmaker Catia Ott follows screening.
