Join us for the NJ premiere of Sicilian Ghost Story, a visually stunning and socially engaged “tragi-romance” about the resilience of adolescents and the power of imagination against repressive violence. Co-directors Fabio Grassadonia and Antonio Piazza build a dark, mesmerizing fairy tale around the true events of a 1993 kidnapping, and effectively re-write the crime film genre. This multi-award winning film opened the International Critics’ Week at last year’s Cannes Film Festival. See TRAILER
