La terra trema

(The Earth Trembles, Luchino Visconti, 1948)

Shot in an actual Sicilian fishing village and employing local townspeople speaking dialect, La terra trema is a gritty, beautifully realized epic of working-class fishermen as they endure a life of backbreaking work, exploitation, and seemingly never-ending poverty. (160 mins., DCP)

Please note: special event parking is available in the Ohio Union Garages.
