Part of the Italian Film Festival 2022 Season
The third feature from Sardinian auteur Bonifacio Angius, The Giants boldly fuses the sweat-drenched wide-screen visuals of 60's 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.
This screening includes an in-person introduction from the festival's programmer Dr Pasquale Iannone.
Pasquale will also host a Q&A with director Bonifacio Angius and the writer Stefano Deffenu.
