PASSIONE: A MUSICAL ADVENTURE

DIRECTOR: John Turturro - UNITED STATES

“Napoli is one of those places where after fresh air, food, and shelter, music is an essential ingredient for the survival of the people. There are places that do something to you, deep down in your unconscious, in your soul. Naples is that for me, as it has been for so many other people in the arts—poets, writers, painters, and musicians throughout the ages. We journey through one of the biggest of jukeboxes in the world, a treasure chest of songs, from 1200 to now, conjuring distant stories and myths that still live, a repertoire that speaks of love, sex, jealousy, social protest. This musical adventure, traversing the city, comes out of the people, the walls that surround them, and the land they inhabit. The performers, some from Napoli and some from abroad, are not just singers in the film, but storytellers.”—John Turturro. (95 mins.)

Selected Filmography: Mac (92), Illuminata (98), Romance & Cigarettes (05).

In Italian, English, and Neapolitan.
