It will be tomorrow, Friday 14th November, the eighth day of the Film Festival: people and religions. Maria Grazia Cucinotta (photo) also this year will be the godmother of the cinematographic festival organized by Istess ( the Institute for socio-historical and theological Studies of Terni diocese). It is an idea of the bishop Vincenzo Paglia. She has been invited for twice. The first was last year.
The Festival 2008, supported by the Municipality of Terni and the Ministry of Culture, faces up the theme “freedom and the religion”, I mean the religious freedom but also the freedom in the religion. Ten days of events from the 7th to the 16th November with showings, previews, round tables, exhibitions and so on. It is not far from the Falls, only 7 kilometres. An attention dedicated to Cina, seen like the continent of the Olympian games but also of religious, social, cultural and political problems. Showing on the subjects dedicated , like the persecutions of the Christians, unfortunately lived in different countries all over the world, or the “irritating” priests, persecuted by the catholic church, like Primo Mazzolari whose a full day has been dedicated. Other important themes are about the screening of films, concerts and debates, about the persecutions of the Jewish during the second world war and the “silences” of Pius XII.
A prize to the carrier for Alessandro D’Alatri, author of “Eden Gardens”, a film about the youth of Jesus, well played by Kim Rossi Stuart. It is only a part of programme until Sunday, the 16th , when the festival says goodbye for the next season. It is very interesting to go in some places of the kermes like the diocesan museum, the cenacle of Saint Marc and the cinema “cityplex” Politeama. All the Falls placed: Terni.
