Film "Lost and Beautiful" (Bella e Perduta) by Pietro Marcello @ The O.P.E.N. (Singapore International Festival of the Arts)




As part of the O.P.E.N (Singapore International Festival of the Arts) the Institute is glad to highlight this potent film by Pietro Marcello.

(Bella e Perduta)

87 min / 2015 / In Italian with English subtitles / PG

From the bowels of Vesuvius, Pulcinella is sent to present-day Campania to grant the dying wish of Tommaso, a simple shepherd: Pulcinella must rescue a buffalo called Sarchiapone. Travelling north, man and beast cross through a lost and beautiful Italy on a strange, unexpected journey. Marcello’s latest work beautifully melds documentary and fiction with archival footage. Lost And Beautiful won two awards at the Locarno Film Festival and was ranked by Cinema Scope as one of 2015’s top films.

The O.P.E.N. is a key fixture of the annual pre-festival of ideas of Singapore International Festival of Arts.

This year the O.P.E.N. Film offers a bumper crop of 25 film screenings, with two films from Italy - Lost and Beautiful (Bella e Perduta) and Fire At Sea (Fuocoammare).
