"This is haunting and affecting with visual poetry to spare."
"There is much to savour in this poignant feature by the former documentary-maker Andrea Segre: not least its tough, uncliched view of Venice."
"A lyrical romance of two lonely souls connecting."
Join us for a very special screening of Andrea Segre's highly acclaimed film, IL SONO LI, an engaging and heart-warming study between two distinctly different immigrants whose relationship evolves via the feeling of loneliness and a need for a close friendship that respects self-imposed limits - an intimacy that is nothing less than pure as neither of them want it to be anything less than pure. Set mostly in the Veneto region along with rhythmical visuals of both land and sea, Segre's film depicts that graceful poetry can indeed be found in the most common of places and people.
Director Andrea Segre will be available for a Q+A following the screening.
