"Familiar and strange" all'American Academy di Roma


Friday 25 February 2011

The American Academy in Rome and the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) are proud to present

“Familiar and Strange: Italiani di Pittsburgh”
a screening at the American Academy  in  Rome of a new documentary film by MICHELE GIACARDI, FLAVIA TIBERI, ANTONIO PAOLUCCI, JURI FANTIGROSSI

Opening remarks: Christopher S. Celenza, Director, American Academy in Rome; Corey Brennan, Professor-in-Charge, American Academy in Rome; Laura Raimondo, Senior Vice-President Research and Development Operations UPMC International Division

Discussion with the filmmakers to follow.

Why do so many Italians leave their country, and what draws them to America? Four student filmmakers from L’Accademia dell’ Immagine in L’Aquila - displaced by the devastating April 2009 earthquake - explored this question as they found themselves completing their studies in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA thanks to the support and commitment of UPMC. Their remarkable film reveals what has been gained and what is lost in the self-imposed upheaval of eight very different Italian emigrants, ranging from a DJ to a medical researcher.
