Film Festival: A Starry Sky Above the Roman Ghetto

April 11 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

A Starry Sky

In this Italian drama interlacing past and present, the discovery of a puzzling photograph sparks a student to probe the history of Rome’s Jewish ghetto and the fate of a little girl. When Sofia finds an old snapshot in a neglected suitcase, she’s mesmerized by the child’s picture. As details of the child’s name, a devastating separation from her parents during a Gestapo raid, and rescue by a nun emerge, Sofia commits to honoring the girl’s memory by staging an original play with classmates and friends from a nearby Jewish high school, despite objections of concerned parents. A talented young ensemble presents this inspiring interfaith story about the importance of memory, coexistence and reconciling generational frictions.
