An important collaboration between University College London and FilmItalia brings to you this important first series of free screenings of award-winning, contemporary Italian documentaries, in original Italian and with English subtitles, with the participation of their directors and Q&As sessions.

These will be conducted by Dr.Cristina Massaccesi, Senior Teaching Fellow & Language Coordinator, Italian Department, UCL.

A series of FREE screenings of contemporary Italian documentaries

The first documentary to be shown will be the award-winning ROMEO E GIULIETTA by acclaimed film director Massimo Coppola who will be flying to London to participate in the Q&A session.
Nino and Mary are two sixteen years old who live in a Roma encampment in the area of Rome’s Tor de’ Cenci. The documentary follows the attempt to produce Romeo and Juliet in a place where the plot of Shakespeare’s play is still absurdly topical: Nino and Mary, our Romeo and Juliet, really do belong to two feuding families drastically opposed to them acting together.
