Unfolding like a fairytale, “Indivisibili”, is the story of eighteen year-old conjoined twins who entertain to support their family. The lives of the talented sisters are transformed into a novelty act; part religious, part superstitions.

MATAKANA Screening Saturday 16 March - "ITALO"

MATAKANA Screening Saturday 16 March - "ITALO"

A film for the whole family! The film was inspired by the touching true story of a stray dog that captured the heart of Italy. The real Italo became a well-known member of the community, attending mass, funerals and weddings, eating pizza, observing religious festivals and even showing tourists around. Italo became famous for saving a young girl from a mugging by bearing his teeth and chasing off the assailant.

This story will entertain, make you laugh and inspire questions around empathy and what it truly means to act ‘humanely’.

A beautiful drama where the depth and intelligence of the story-telling has garnered the film much attention, winning considerable critical acclaim and repeated Peoples’ Choice Awards.

“De Paolis’ non-judgmental depiction of their two worlds has a raw urgency that should find receptive audiences at festivals worldwide”.
