Italian Film & Discussion – Join us for a screening of the 2004 masterpiece IO NON HO PAURA by Gabriele Salvatores
“I’m not Scared” — In Italian with English subtitles
It is the summer of 1978, and during a bike ride with friends through the grain fields outside a small town in Basilicata, 9-year-old Michele comes upon an abandoned house where in the courtyard he finds a deep hole. Looking inside he finds a leg sticking out from under the hay. Terrified, Michele decides to keep his discovery a secret. Returning to the scene he finds a young boy, Filippo, chained, but alive. It turns out that Filippo is the victim of a kidnapping. A relationship develops between Michele and Filippo who has no memory of how he ended up in the hole, but the story becomes more complicated when Michele learns that his own father might have had something to do with Filippo’s captivity…
“I’m Not Scared is a reminder of true childhood, of its fears and speculations, of the way a conversation can be overheard but not understood, of the way that the shape of the adult world forms slowly through the mist” (Roger Ebert). The film is based on a novel by Niccolò Ammaniti and is hailed for the power of its story and the stunningly beautiful cinematography which earned the director the David di Donatello Award for Best Cinematography.
