Italian Movie Screening: Benvenuti al Sud

Andrea Ballanti invites you to a free screening of Benvenuti al Sud, a formidable Italian comedy.
Haven’t mastered Italian? No worries–there will be English subtitles:

Alberto Colombo (Claudio Bisio), a civil servant of the Italian Postal Service, has been passed up for promotion to a coveted position in Milan. Following a comical yet ill-fated attempt to secure another such opening, he is assigned to two years postal purgatory in Italy’s southern region. Alberto’s wife Silvia chooses to remain in the civilized north while Alberto is subjected to his penance.

“When a stranger comes to the South he cries twice: when he arrives and when he leaves.”
