“Cinema Paradiso” was released in 1988, written and directed by Guiseppe Tomatore, with an unforgettable music score by Enno Morricone.

The film was a critical and box office success and it is regarded by many as a classic of its kind: the film won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film in 1989, and is often credited with reviving the Italian film industry.

A filmmaker recalls his childhood when falling in love with the posters at the cinema of his home village in Scicily, and he forms a deep friendship with the cinema’s projectionist.  The film explores a young boy’s dream of leaving his home-town to foray into the wide-world outside his present experience.
