Details

The third feature from Sardinian auteur Bonifacio Angius, The Giants boldly fuses the sweat-drenched widescreen visuals of 1960s spaghetti westerns with elements of Marco Ferreri’s controversial 1973 film La grande bouffe.

As well as serving as director, producer and cinematographer, Angius co-stars as one of a group of male friends who gather at an isolated house on the outskirts of Sassari. Suffused with a tangible sense of unease, The Giants is a blackly comic take on Italian masculinity in crisis

The screening will be followed by a Q&A with director Bonifacio Angius and writer Stephano Deffenu, hosted by Italian Film Festival programmer Pasquale Iannone.
