Cinema Made in Italy

The Cinema Made in Italy program promotes and distributes contemporary Italian films to theaters in the United States, insuring that the best of Italian cinema is always available to fans, no matter where they live in the country. The series is an initiative sponsored by Cinecittà and is managed by Deutchman Company Inc, which handles the marketing and distribution of the films. In previous years, the initiative has released or supported such films as Paolo Sorrentino’s Academy Award winning Best Foreign Language Film,“The Great Beauty,” Valeria Golino’s “Honey,” Marco Bellochio’s “Dormant Beauty,” Bernardo Bertolucci’s “Me and You,” Nanni Moretti’s “Mia Madre” and Gianfranco Rosi’s Academy Award nominated Best Documentary, “Fire at Sea” among others.



a film by Carolina Cavalli

Born into an upper-class family with a doting mother who foots the bill for her indolent lifestyle, 24-year-old combative Amanda (emerging talent Benedetta Porcaroli) searches for boyfriends but only finds misfits who are repelled by her intensity. She longs for connection but has never had a friend of her own… until she discovers a long lost childhood bond, spurring a mission to convince another recluse that they are still best friends. A playful, provocative feature debut from writer-director Carolina Cavalli.

a film by Emanuele Crialese

Clara (Penélope Cruz) and her emotionally distant husband Felice (Vincenzo Amato) relocate to Rome to raise a family. Even though the paint is fresh, and the appliances are new, the crushing expectations around marriage, desire, and gender in the early 1970s remain as traditional as ever. Their children Andrew (played by newcomer Luana Giuliani), Gino, and Diana are likewise poised at a precipice, on the verge of adolescence, with nothing but their imaginations to defuse family tensions. The eldest child, Andrew (nicknamed Adri by his parents), yearns for another life – an outsized, vibrantly-realized vision of a world where he gets to live as the boy he knows himself to be. Without an accepted vocabulary for talking about his transgender identity, Andrew tells adults that he’s an alien from another galaxy and makes a habit of running away to pursue a local Roma girl who accepts his boyhood at face value. As an outsider ostracized for her own eccentricities, Clara instinctively strives to protect her son despite not fully understanding him. An effortlessly moving film about growing up, fitting in, and breaking the mold, L’immensita is as freewheeling and creative as its central characters, mixing genres and staging musical numbers out of thin air.

L’Immensità is a grand and vibrant work of art.”
–The Wrap

“Everything in L’Immensità is beautiful even when everything wasn’t… Crialese’s odd, affecting memory piece layers the world as it was, is and could be in the same gilded frame.”

The Eight Mountains

a film by Felix van Groeningen and
Charlotte Vandermeersch

After meeting as children over a series of summers in the Italian Alps, Pietro (Luca Marinelli) and Bruno (Alessandro Borghi) reunite as adults to build a mountainside cottage which becomes a site of both reflection and reconciliation. In The Eight Mountains, winner of the Jury Prize at the 2022 Cannes Film Festival, Felix Van Groeningen and Charlotte Vandermeersch (Beautiful Boy, The Broken Circle Breakdown) trace with exquisite beauty and grace the life trajectories of two men whose peak moments and low ebbs become one with the landscape that has shaped them.

Winner, Grand Jury Prize
2022 Cannes Film Festival

Official Selection
Sundance Film Festival

“Magnificent.  A gorgeous, glorious retreat.  One of the strongest and most vibrantly shot pictures in the Cannes Competition.”  
–Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times

“*****  (Highest Rating). This is a movie with air in its lungs and love in its heart. It is spacious and unhurried in its devotion to beauty and to what it means to be human. This film has mystery and passion, it climbs mountainous heights and rewards you with the opposite of vertigo: a sort of exaltation.”  
–Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“Joyful and grateful and wise.   Novelistic in the best sense. It immerses you in the world of its characters – both human and Alpine – But it lives and breathes in beautifully cinematic terms.“
–Jessica Kiang, Variety
