Umberto E
Friday September 7, 2012 at 7:00pm
Directed by Anton Evangelista (2012)

Anton Evangelista is a New York City-based filmmaker. After graduation, he found a niche as a storyboard artist for advertising agencies, while landing acting roles in a variety of renowned films. He also worked as an Italian translator for Martin Scorsese and Dante Ferretti on The Age of Innocence. His first short film, Beyond Reason (1995, went on to play at many international film festivals, as did his film Intervention (2004), an award-winning, character-driven love story, taking place in 1968. Umberto E is the epic story of Umberto Evangelista, a dynamic and charming ninety-year-old Italian immigrant living in New York City. The moie depicts his real life Cinderella tale, in which he chooses love and forgiveness as his weapons of revenge.
