About the Event

ll Postino: The Postman is a 1994 comedy-drama film co-written by and starring Massimo Troisi. Based on the 1985 novel Ardiente paciencia, the film tells a fictional story in which the real life  Pablo Neruda forms a friendship with a simple Procida postman who learns to love poetry. The cast includes Troisi, Philippe Noiret, and Maria Grazia Cucinotta.

Writer/star Troisi was severely ill during filming, postponing heart surgery so it could be completed. The day after principal photography ended, he suffered a fatal heart attack, and the film was completed and released posthumously. The film was critically acclaimed, earning numerous accolades including BAFTA Awards for Best Film Not in the English Language, Best Direction, and Best Film Music. It won the Academy Award for Best Original Dramatic Score, and the film was nominated for Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor, and Best Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published.

In Italian with English subtitles. Suggested donation $5.
