Event postponed to a date due to bad weather

A stop in the hamlet of San Michele, in Bra, is the review of itinerant auteur cinema "Periferia cuore della città". The appointment is for Thursday 12 July 2018, near the meeting center, with "All the money in the world", a film directed by Ridley Scott.

The film is an adrenaline-like reconstruction of a reality that really happened and became an international media case: the kidnapping of Paul Getty III. In the summer of 1973, the sixteen-year-old nephew of oil magnate Jean Paul Getty (Christopher Plummer) is kidnapped by a gang of masked men as he wanders through the alleys of Rome. Despite pressure from his mother Gail Harris (Michelle Williams), the wealthy oil industry, known for being the richest and most avid man in the world, refuses to pay the exorbitant ransom demand that amounts to 17 million dollars. The kidnapping of his favorite nephew, in fact, is not for him reason enough to renounce part of his fortunes, so much to force the boy's mother and the man in charge of starting a negotiation with the criminals, to a wild race against time to collect the money, pay the ransom and finally embrace the young Paul.

Opening the evening will be a projection of a sensitization clip against gambling and a video interview with Piero Fraire that recalls the world of the "utin" (or, to put it in Italian, the "altens"), the casette that the braidesi had on the city hills, place of leisure and socialization for generations of our fellow citizens. The short film, by Fabio Bailo, Cultural Assessor, is made with audiovisual materials drawn from the archives of the Historical Institute of Bra and of the Braidesi.

The review "Heart of the city" continues throughout the summer: the 19 July in Bandito there is "Ella and John" (by Paolo Virzì), the 26 "A casa tutti bene" (directed by Gabriele Muccino, with Stefano Accorsi) in San Matteo, the August 2 "Victoria and Abdul" (directed by Stephen Frears) in via Sobrero. At Riva, the 9 August, will be screened "Against Hand" (by and with Antonio Albanese), the 16 on August in Piazza Giolitti "The young Karl Marx" (by Raul Peck). The 23, with the animated film "Coco", in Madonna Fiori and the 30 with "L'ora più buia" (by Joe Wright) in Pollenzo, closes at the end of August. The 6 September, however, there will be the evening "Film Music": in the courtyard of Palazzo Garrone, from the 21,30, the city band "Giuseppe Verdi" will play famous Italian and foreign soundtracks, including songs by Ennio Morricone and John Williams and many others, while the fragments of the films will be projected.

Films start after 21.30. Free entry and seats until exhaustion. More information on www.turismoinbra.it. (Em)
