Description

As part of a series of events this month presented during Festitalia, and celebrating the life of Racalmuto-born author Leonardo Sciascia, Cinema Insieme is proud to present this film based on his novel. Porte Aperte is directed by Gianni Amelio and was nominated for the 1991 Oscar for best foreign film and 19 other awards.

We are also pleased to be joined that evening by a delegation of civic leaders from Racamulto, Sicily.

The story is set in Palermo in 1937. Tommaso Scalia commits three murders: he killed his superior who sacked him, he kills the man who replaced him, and he kills his own wife. He wants a quick trial and an early execution, but an earnest, principled assistant judge looks for a way to save the murderer from being shot, because he does not belive in capital punishment. Although he manages to save the man initially, he will pay a high price for it.
