Franco Maresco is back in Catania for a special event with the audience of Magma. On this occasion, the director and screenwriter from Palermo, who will also chair the 2018 festival’s Jury, will present two of his films at King Multisala Cinestudio.
Enzo, domani a Palermo! (1999), co-directed with Daniele Ciprì, is about the tragicomic legal proceedings of Enzo Castagna, a funeral service manager that for thirty years has been the only organiser of cinema extras in Palermo as well as the animator of town fairs featuring neomelodic singers.
La mia Battaglia (2017) is a documentary portrait of the great photographer Letizia Battaglia. In the 70’s and 80’s she witnessed Sicily, a land overwhelmed by mafia and cultural decadence but also able to dispense grace and innocence through the faces of ordinary people.
