La terra trema

November 10 at 2:30
East Building Auditorium

La terra trema (The Earth Trembles) features a cast of nonprofessionals — mostly local fishermen of Aci Trezza, north of Catania — to portray the life of a Sicilian coastal village. Forfeiting his own house to buy a workboat in order to avoid the brokers who control the local fleet, Antonio suffers a different sort of distress, stemming from bad weather and the bitterness of the other villagers. Visconti based his epic film on I Malavoglia, an 1881 novel by Italian realist Giovanni Verga. (1948, subtitles, 160 minutes)
