including a segment from of his most recent short, "Alberi".
Saturday January 11th at 7PM.
Il Dono (The Gift) 73 minutes
Frammartino's first feature's is notable for its measured pace and subtle
approach to storytelling. The long, largely static shots first appear reluctant
to divulge anything beyond what we see: a Calabrian village, the surrounding
countryside, old farmhouses, a car or bike climbing a hill, people walking
slowly along narrow streets, faces.
Aspect ration: 4:3

Le Quattro Volte (The Four Times) 88 minutes
Frammartino's second feature film, Le Quattro Volte ("The Four Times"), is a
sort of documentary about life in the awesomely beautiful but impoverished
southern area of Calabria from where his family originally moved north.
Specifically it's about the remote mountain town of Caulonia, though it is only
named in the final credits.
Aspect Ratio: 1.85 : 1
