Le sorelle Macaluso, feature film, Italy, 2020
DIRECTED BY: Emma Dante
Alissa Maria Orlando,
Sisters Maria, Pinuccia, Lia, Katia and Antonella live alone in a suburb of Palermo. They make a living by renting pigeons for various ceremonies and festivities. One very ordinary day, Antonella dies at the beach. Her death will completely upend the relationships between the sisters and affect the rest of their lives. As time goes by, the sisters change. This touching adaptation of the director’s award-winning theatre play is a family chronicle of time, transience, memory, lasting things and the people who stay with us even when they’re gone. The film appeared at festivals in Venice, Toronto and Warsaw.
