Figli della Notte (Children of the Night)

Figli della Notte (Children of the Night)

The Italian Cultural Institute, NYU Washington, DC, and N.I.C.E. (New Italian Cinema Events) present a screening of Figli della Notte (Children of the Night) by Andrea De Sica.

N.I.C.E. is a non-for-profit cultural organization that was founded in 1991 by a group of film professionals and which has consequently grown into one of the most important expressions of Italian cinematography abroad. The goal of the organization is to promote New Italian Cinema abroad, through a series of film festivals and cultural exchanges. Every year, Nice organizes festivals in the United States, Russia, England, and China. The festival in the USA, taking place every November, is the first one to be organized every year and the oldest for N.I.C.E. 

Synopsis: Giulio, a seventeen-year-old from a well-to-do family, is sent to a boarding school. In this isolated place in the Alps, where iron-clad rules limit all contact with the outside, he makes friends with Edoardo, who is rather odd. Their friendship is sealed by frequent escapes at night, when the surveillance of the students seems to lapse. They begin to frequent a nightclub hidden in the forest, which becomes a refuge for the two young men. This is where they meet Elena, a prostitute, and become fond of her. Suddenly, they discover that the transgressions they have kept hidden are actually part of the school’s educational program. And yet there must be a way for them to become truly free...
