Screening of the film

World Premiere

                                                            Presented by the Presidenza del Consiglio dei Ministri, Ministero dei Beni e delle Attivita` Culturali e del Turismo, Cinemaundici, Ipotesi Cinema, Rai Cinema, in collaboration with the Consolato Generale d’Italia and Istituto Italiano di Cultura di Chicago.We are at the North-East frontline, after the last bloody battles of 1917 on the Plateau. Events always happen in an unpredictable succession: sometimes there are long delays, where fear makes you count each moment, until it's your time. So that the peace of the mountain becomes the place where you find death. Everything in this film really happened.Eight weeks of shooting that show the atmosphere of WWI, exactly on the Asiago Plateau, among those mountains that witnessed the efforts, the tragedies and suffering of soldiers of the Great War.  There, the trench, the main set of the film, has been reproduced: inside, communication trenches, dormitories and the Captain's bunker at Val Giardini, 1100 meters above sea level; outside, the environment at Val Formica, 1800 meters above sea level.Well-known actors, such as Claudio Santamaria and Alessandro Sperduti, appear in this film, as do first-time actors.The significant and irrevocable element is the coexistence between two different categories of people: the "Superiors" and those of "humble existences," both obliged by war to cohabit daily and to face death with equality.This event is free and open to the public. Light refreshments will follow.  Click here to RSVP.
