On Sunday, December 17th, at 7pm at the Emerson Center, The Bozeman Doc Series presents the Montana premiere of the award-winning new documentary, Spettacolo.

 Fifty years ago, villagers in a tiny hill town in Tuscany found a remarkable way to confront their issues – they turned their lives into a play. From their near annihilation by Nazis to the struggles of the town’s independent farmers to the commercialization of their land, every major event has been debated and dramatized by the villagers in the center of town. “Spettacolo” tells the story of Teatro Povero di Monticchiello, interweaving episodes from its past with its modern-day process as the villagers weather a series of devastating blows to bring their latest production to life.

“All the world’s a stage, but in Monticchiello that truism is movingly real…so poignant and so intelligently told that it feels wrong, almost insulting, to call “Spettacolo” charming, even if the movie is often delightful.” The New York Times
