About LA FIERA ITALIAN MOVIE NIGHT AT EMPAC
Saturday night following the La Fiera Street Fiesta an Italian Movie Night will be held in our local schools performing arts centre being conducted by Lions Club of Myrtleford.
5pm First movie. They’re a Weird Mob (G)
A 1970’s movie mostly set in Sydney in 1965, which at the time is a sprawling, growing city of three million people. Easy going, down to earth and hilariously funny people. In truth a very weird mob. Into the city and fresh off the boat comes innocent, Italian immigrant Nino Culotta who soon finds his promised sportswriter’s job has vanished along with his bankrupt cousin and sponsor. A job as a builder’s labourer comes his way and Nino quickly gets an education in how to be a fair dinkum Aussie, one of the “weird mob” with their outlandish language and strange ways. 112 min
7pm to 8pm. Light Antipasto Supper and refreshments ( Beers $5.00 Wine $5.00)
8pm Second Movie. Life is Beautiful (M) 15+
It's 1939. The jovial, playful Guido comes to town. He works as a waiter under the watchful eye of his uncle, an elegant man who is a Jew. Guido falls for Dora, a schoolteacher, whom he calls "princess" and courts by popping up at unexpected times. She dumps her fiancé to choose Guido. The film jumps ahead to the wars last months. Nora and Guido have a child, Giosué, and when Guido and the lad are shipped to a concentration camp, Dora voluntarily follows. Although the men and women in the camp are separated and a child is in mortal peril, Guido finds ways to communicate with Dora, to hide Giosué, and to convince the boy this is an elaborate game, a special contest to win a tank. 116 min
