Umberto E (2011), 42 min. Anton Evangelista, dir.

A true lover of words, history and “patria,” Umberto E is the tender story of ninety-year old Umberto Evangelista’s own vivid recollections of his life as an eternal immigrant, both in Italy and in the United States. A story of personal triumph, choosing love and forgiveness as his weapons of “revenge.” Lucia Grillo, Host and Associate Producer of Italics, and director of The Cost of Bread, will converse with Anton Evangelista afterwards. Moderated by Dr. Maria Grace LaRusso, Calandra Counselor.
Sponsored by the John D. Calandra Italian American Institute and the Italian Heritage and Culture Committee.
