New Digital Restoration! Joe Valencic introduces
Yugoslavia | 1956 | France Štiglic
This beautifully shot WWII film follows two young Slovenian children living under German occupation. When their families and homes are destroyed in an air raid, the kids set off to find a fabled “Valley of Peace.” Along the way they meet a downed African-American GI (John Kitzmiller, who won the best actor prize at Cannes for his performance, the first black person to do so), and he protects them on their journey. This new restoration was a “Cannes Classics” presentation at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival. Historian, writer, and radio host Joe Valencic will introduce the film at 6:30. Slovenian with subtitles. DCP. 90 min.
