Gente del Po
People of the Po Valley
Michelangelo Antonioni

1943 / Italy / 11'
OCT 21 / 7.30 pm, Culturgest – Large Aud.

Gente del Po is a hushed, evocative sketch of the daily toils of fishermen on the River Po. Even in this minor-key debut, with its plangent, gorgeous compositions, you can see the seeds of Antonioni’s style. ‘Everything that I made afterwards, either good or bad, starts from there, from this film on the River Po’, the director once said.” Criterion
