Andò, Roberto

Viva La Libertà Viva La Libertà

When Enrico (Tony Servillo), the leader of Italy’s opposition party, abandons politics and disappears without a trace, the party leadership finds itself at a loss - until they uncover his long-estranged mad genius lookalike brother, Giovanni, fresh out of a mental institution. Passing perfectly for Enrico, Giovanni quickly garners overwhelming public support with his bracingly candid political ravings. Equal parts absurdist and contemplative, Viva la Libertà offers a droll satire of contemporary Italian politics.

Dracula 3D Dracula 3D

A gleeful homage to Bram Stoker’s classic novel from legendary horror auteur Dario Argento (Suspiria) with the master’s distinctive twist on the familiar story, Dracula 3D focuses its story on the characters of Mina and Lucy, two women in the Count’s erotic thrall. When the shape shifting Count sets his sights on Mina, and then Lucy, neither woman can resist his sinister charms, although failure to do so means joining the ranks of the undead. Director Dario Argento scheduled to attend.

After a tragedy throws his life into turmoil, the self-absorbed young Beto ventures deep into the Brazilian countryside in search of a collection of rare prints his absent father had sold to a wealthy plantation owner decades earlier. When he locates the plantation, he finds it devastated and its inhabitants staunchly resistant to visitors. A sophisticated, engrossing thriller, the film follows Beto’s efforts to uncover the mystery of the prints and the family keeping them hidden from the world.
