Director: Vittorio De Sica

Starring: Emma Gramatica, Francesco Golisano, Paolo Stoppa, Guglielmo Barnabò

Director Vittorio De Sica's unique blend of post-war Italian neorealism and children's fantasy still weaves a magical spell over 70 years later. Set in the outskirts of Milan, a young boy - with some divine help - helps a band of vagabonds after greedy owners of the land on which they're living attempt to displace them after discovering oil. A touching and whimsical tale, the film's central conflict between everyday people and wealthy landowners resonates to this day.

Our special guest is Toronto Magician Andy Blau, who has been entertaining for more than two decades across Canada and the US, with over 2,500 live performances under his belt.

Proficient in classic parlour magic, modern nightclub magic, close-up magic, and side-show stunts, Andy also performs in character as "Zoltan the Adequate" at medieval, renaissance, and pirate-themed events - you can find him online at and catch him in person over the August holiday weekend at the Ontario Pirate Festival. The show is loud, funny, unusual, confusing, surprising, and one of the most bizarre things most people have ever seen.

About the organizer

TFS is one of Canada’s oldest film appreciation groups. It was originally formed to meet the demand for Canadian and international forgotten, banned, independent, and fringe sound and silent films, and to support their preservation and restoration. It is a volunteer run, membership driven, non-profit organization dedicated to the study of the artistic, historic, and social significance of cinema. Our expertly-curated films (from 1910-80, of various genres) are shown on the big screen, as they were meant to be enjoyed. Some are rare archival prints not easily obtained by the general public. Our extraordinary series, festivals, and events engage diverse cinephiles of all ages from Toronto and beyond.
