FESTIVAL – Settimana del Cinema Italiano
All this week, the Settimana del Cinema Italiano, hosted by The Istituto Italiano de Cultura, takes place in Dublin City with several free film screenings. The whole programme is available here. Today’s screening is Il primo incarico, a 2010 Italian drama movie, directed by Giorgia Cecere.
Puglia, Southern Italy, 1950s. Nena has to travel far from home to get her first job as a teacher. But what she finds is completely different from what she had imagined: a school isolated on a high mountain plain, wild children, people she has nothing in common with, and a hostile environment. One cold February day everything seems lost forever when she receives a letter from her boyfriend who confesses he is in love with another woman.
Film in Italian with English subtitles.
