The Italian Cultural Institute in Oslo and the University of Iceland, in collaboration with the Italian Embassy in Oslo, present the first Iceland Salento International Film Festival that will take place at the University of Iceland in Reykjavik on 8-9 November.
SATURDAY 9 NOVEMBER | VERÖLD – HOUSE OF VIGDÍS | 18:00 QUIET BLISS by Edoardo Winspeare | 2014 | 127’
Three generations of women seek refuge in their family’s olive grove in Salento after their small textile business collapses in this
Winspeare’s warm and vibrant drama. With a radiant southern Italian backdrop, the women turn to a back-to-basics existence to help heal the wounds wrought by the recession, rendered here with pathos, insight, and humor alike.
Director Edoardo Winspeare and actress Celeste Casciaro will introduce the film and a Q&A after the screening.
The film is screened with English subtitles in the auditorium of Veröld - House of Vigdís. Admission is free.
