In October 1940, while sailing across the Atlantic, a Belgian vessel disguised as a merchant ship opens fire on the submarine Cappellini of the Italian Royal Navy. A brief but fierce battle ensues in which the Italian submarine sinks the enemy ship with gunfire. And it is at this point that the commander takes a decision that will go down in history: to rescue the twenty-six members of the Belgian crew from drowning in the middle of the ocean and tow their lifeboat to the nearest safe port, as required by the law of the sea.

LA CHIMERA
by Alice Rohrwacher
(130 mins | 2023)

Everyone has their own Chimera, something they try to achieve but never manage to find. For the band of tombaroli, thieves of ancient grave goods and archaeological wonders, the Chimera means redemption from work and the dream of easy wealth. For Arthur, the Chimera looks like the woman he lost, Beniamina. To find her, Arthur challenges the invisible, searches everywhere, goes inside the earth – in search of the door to the afterlife of which myths speak.
