ITALIAN SCREENS – New Italian Cinema Goes Abroad is an initiative by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation (MAECI), Cinecittà for the Directorate General for Cinema and Audiovisual of the Ministry of Culture (DGCA-MiC), and the Academy of Italian Cinema – David di Donatello Awards.

 ITALIAN SCREENS has been set up to promote the Italian Film Distribution Fund, development and production incentives, attractive tax credits and amazing locations. The screenings in Los Angeles are organized by ITTV International Forum, in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute in Los Angeles, and under the auspices of the Consulate General of Italy.


About Ti Mangio Il Cuore

The forbidden love between Andrea, the reluctant heir of the Malatesta family, and Marilena, the beautiful wife of the Camporeale boss, rekindles an old feud between two rival families. The fatal passion brings the clans back into war, in an ancient land, not so different from the far west, where only blood can wash out blood, following the ruthless codes of the local mafia. But Marilena, now cast out by the Camporeale and prisoner of the Malatesta, contended and reviled, with the strength only a wounded mother can have, will oppose to a destiny which seems already written.

Not rated. In Italian, with English subtitles. Running time: 115 minutes.
