Spettacolo

Director: Jeff Malmberg, Chris Shellen
Producers: Matt Radecki

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.

Spettacolo tells the story of a tiny hill town in Tuscany, interweaving episodes from its past with its modern-day process as the villagers turn a series of devastating blows into a new play about the end of their world.

2017, NR, USA, Documentary, Italian with English subtitles, 91 minutes
