L'ALBERO DEGLI ZOCCOLI
Italy | 1978 | Ermanno Olmi
Winner of the Palme d’Or at the 1978 Cannes Film Festival and one of the most acclaimed and honored movies of the past 40 years, Ermanno Olmi’s rustic epic employs non-professional actors to depict day-to-day, late 19th-century life in and around a northern Italian farmhouse shared by four peasant families. Living close to the earth, they remain sensitive to the eternal cycles of work and seasons, love and marriage, birth and death. “Intimate in scale but epic in scope—a towering, heart-stirring work of humanist filmmaking.” –Criterion.com. Cleveland revival premiere. Subtitles. DCP. 186 min.
