Aspromonte. Land Of The Forgotten

Directed by Mimmo Calopresti

At the end of the ’50s in Africo, a small village in the valley of Aspromonte, a woman dies in childbirth, because the doctor cannot be there on time, as no route connects Africo with the other villages.

The inhabitants decide to get together to build it up. In the meantime, Giulia (Valeria Bruni Tedeschi), the new teacher of the local school is trying to teach Italian to the kids.

Aspromonte is an atypical western about the dream of changing events thanks to the desire for redemption of the inhabitants of a remote village. Starring Marcello Fonte (Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Actor in Dogman).
