Napoli '44 ( Naples '44 )



Napoli '44 ( Naples '44 )

As part of the 30th Edition of the AFI European Union Film Showcase, Italy presents the screening of Napoli '44 (Naples '44).

Working from a wealth of archival footage and carefully selected fiction films, Italian documentarian Francesco Patierno adapts British travel writer/novelist Norman Lewis' celebrated WWII memoir for the big screen. With incisive wit, wisdom and affection, Lewis chronicled his time as a British Army sergeant stationed in Naples from 1943 to 1944. As narrated by Benedict Cumberbatch, Lewis bears hard-eyed witness to the population's difficult recovery after years of fascist rule, Nazi occupation and the devastation and degradation of war.

Director: Francesco Patierno
