Miracle in Milan (Miracolo a milano): dir Vittorio De Sica (1951)
8 July @ 7.30 pm - 9.00 pmFree
Classic Vittorio De Sica, a powerful piece of social protest in the guise of allegorical fantasy: the homeless in post-war Milan are organised by the remarkable and semi-saintly Totò, but they find themselves battling a rich landowner who wants to drill for oil on their land. Miracle in Milan won the Grand Prize of the Cannes Film Festival in 1951, and this largely unsung masterpiece with its magic realism perfectly imagines a place where society’s most downtrodden can find purchase and possible escape from misery.
