The Italian Film Festival invites you to enjoy its 2018 line-up of feature films, opening the weekend of September 22-23, and continuing the weekends of September 29-30, followed by screenings on Saturday October 6, 13, 27, and November 3 .  Eight films:  fresh, recent comedies and dramas from Italy.
Synopsis of "It's The Law", a comedy: In the (fictitious) Sicilian town of Pietramare, the date for the mayoral election is at hand, and first-time candidate professor Pierpaolo Natoli is set to take on longtime office-holder and crooked Gaetano Patanè.  The newcomer promises to clean up the old ways, but will the townspeople be ready for all the changes?  Our two heroes, Salvo and Valentino, business partners are on opposite sides of the race.  They are also on opposite sides of the town’s problems, like double parking, garbage scattered all over the street, potholes, etc.  The dilemma: who to vote for?  What to do?  The town plunges into turmoil, and the telling of their story is filled with gags, misunderstandings, and humor.

*All films are in Italian/original language with subtitles in English, and are suggested for mature audiences.
