Church of Film: Magic & Ecstasy: The Films of Luigi di Gianni

This event is in the past
Wednesday, September 20, 7 pm
Clinton Street Theater Hosford-Abernethy (Portland)
This is an in-person event

The following description comes from the event organizer.

In gloomy and gothic short work, Neapolitan filmmaker Luigi di Gianni explored an ancient world of pagan rites colliding with medieval Catholicism, witchcraft, possession, and cults, all still continuing in central and southern Italy. As a world of capitalism and consumerism surrounds a forgotten and impoverished people, they insist on an adherence to an old world of supernatural and superstition! MAGIC & ECSTASY will showcase the most celebrated of di Gianni’s works such as Magica Lucana (1958) and Grazia e Numeri (1962), as well as rare short works of fiction in an eye-opening and witchy set.
