Synopsis by Ben Schultz
This documentary looks at Monticchiello, a small Italian town whose citizens put on a play about their lives every year. The tradition began as a way for the townspeople to examine their experiences during WWII, but land development, the country's financial crisis, and a lack of interest from younger generations threaten to bring the curtain down forever. Directed by Jeff Malmberg and Chris Shellen.
