Ghosts & Gangsters at 2018 Open Roads: New Italian Cinema

Sicilian Ghost Story 

Now in it’s 18th edition, the Open Roads: New Italian Cinema film festival hits Lincoln Center with a slate of Italian films. Taking place at the Walter Reade Theater (165 West 65th Street) and running from May 31 to June 6, the festival features 17 films.  The Opening Night selection is Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazz’s second feature, Sicilian Ghost Story, based on the true events of a missing young boy.

The fest will also include the premiere of Boys Cry, a gritty gangster genre debut by the D'Innocenzo brothers; Roberto De Paolis's feature debut about youthful self-discovery, and Pure Hearts; Sergio Castellitto's emotionally raw Fortunata, featuring legendary Rainer Werner Fassbinder leading lady Hanna Schygulla and Jasmine Trinca. Plus three works by returning Open Roads filmmakers: Marco Tullio Giordana's Nome di donna, Ferzan Ozpetek’s Naples in Veils, and Vincenzo Marra’s Equilibrium.
