Happy As Lazzaro

Our next film, on Tuesday 7 January at 19:45, is Happy As Lazzaro, directed by Alice Rohrwacher. This 2018 from Italy is an extraordinary and evocative cinematic puzzle, blending social realism and something more magical.

On a feudal estate in Italy, peasant workers struggle to survive. Then teenage Lazzaro (Adriano Tardiolo) has an accident, waking up to find everything has changed.
