Event Details

By Pietro Marcello a mythical journey into Italian nostalgia.

From the bowels of Vesuvius, Pulcinella, a foolish servant, is sent to present-day Campania to grant the last wish of Tommaso, a simple shepherd: he must rescue a young buffalo called Sarchiapone. In the Royal Palace of Carditello, an abandoned Bourbon residence in the heart of the ‘Land of Fires’, the ruins of which were once looked after by Tommaso, Pulcinella finds the young buffalo and leads him North. The two servants, man and beast, embark upon a long journey throughout a lost and beautiful Italy, at the end of which they will not find quite what they had expected.

The screening is part of a new documentary festival Frames of Representation (FoR) which showcases new forms of documentary cinema and invites discussion around the issues represented on screen. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with the director.
Uk Premiere in partnership with Italian Cultural Institute.
