Film Society of Lincoln Center announces 2017 Open Roads

The Film Society of Lincoln Center and Istituto Luce Cinecittà have announced the complete lineup for the 17th edition of Open Roads: New Italian Cinema, June 1-7.
Open Roads: New Italian Cinema offers North American audiences a diverse and extensive lineup of contemporary Italian films. This year’s edition again strikes a balance between emerging talents and esteemed veterans, commercial and independent fare, outrageous comedies, gripping dramas, and captivating documentaries, with in-person appearances by many of the filmmakers.
The Opening Night selection is the New York premiere of Edoardo De Angelis’s Indivisible, a captivating feature about talented conjoined twins whose dreams for their futures start to diverge around their eighteenth birthday. This year’s edition showcases 13 additional titles, all North American or New York premieres, including At War with Love, acclaimed Italian TV personality Pierfrancesco Diliberto’s World War II–set satire; Federica Di Giacomo’s exorcism documentary Deliver, which won the Orizzonti Prize at last year’s Venice Film Festival; Marco Tullio Giordana’s Two Soldiers, the last in his popular organized crime trilogy; and The War of the Yokels, Davide Barletti & Lorenzo Conte’s fable about a society at war—cast almost completely with children.
Open Roads: New Italian Cinema is co-presented by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and Istituto Luce Cinecittà. Organized by Dennis Lim and Dan Sullivan, Film Society; and by Carla Cattani, Griselda Guerrasio, and Monique Catalino, Istituto Luce Cinecittà.
Acknowledgments: Italian Trade Commission; Italian Cultural Institute New York; Casa Italiana Zerilli Marimò—NYU; Antonio Monda.
