Film Screening: "Kidnapped" (Italian: Rapito)

"Kidnapped" is a 2023 Italian-language historical drama film co-written and directed by Marco Bellocchio. It tells the compelling story of Edgardo Mortara, a young Jewish boy who was taken from his family by the Papal States and raised as a Catholic. Loosely based on Daniele Scalise's book, "Il caso Mortara," this thought-provoking film is a co-production between Italy, France, and Germany. Notably, it was selected to compete for the Palme d'Or at the 76th Cannes Film Festival.

While enjoying this engaging film, you'll also have the opportunity to savor homemade specialties from the Italian restaurant, Genova.
