Capital Celluloid 2016 - Day 114: Sat Apr 23

Lost and Beautiful (Marcello, 2015): ICA Cinema, 6.30pm

Here is the ICA introduction to this documentary, part of the Frames of Representation season at the cinema:
There is a Q&A with filmmaker Pietro Marcello and film editor Sara Fgaier following the screening, hosted by Andrea Lissoni, Senior Curator, Tate Modern. A mythical journey into Italian nostalgia. From the bowels of Vesuvius, Pulcinella, a foolish servant, is sent to present-day Campania to grant the last wish of Tommaso, a simple shepherd: he must rescue a young buffalo called Sarchiapone. In the Royal Palace of Carditello, an abandoned Bourbon residence in the heart of the ‘Land of Fires’, the ruins of which were once looked after by Tommaso, Pulcinella finds the young buffalo and leads him North. The two servants, man and beast, embark upon a long journey throughout a lost and beautiful Italy, at the end of which they will not find quite what they had expected.

Here (and above) is the trailer.
