States of Incarceration: Mass Story Lab: Public conversation about re-entry, April 29, 2017

This dialogue-based program brings together people with diverse perspectives and experiences to explore re-entry issues in central Indiana. It uses the “Mass Story Lab” model developed by Piper Anderson (Create Forward) in which the stories of people directly impacted by mass incarceration become the lens through which communities imagine a world beyond prisons.

Italian Film Festival: La Via Della Conciliazione (The Road to Reconciliation)/ Veloce Come Il Vento (Italian Race), , April 29, 2017

“La Via Della Conciliazione” (“The Road to Reconciliation”), documentary, 1:30 p.m. Saturday, April 29: The Via della Conciliazione with St. Peter’s Basilica in the background is one of Rome’s most famous images. But few realize that this street has not always been there and, in fact, it should not be there.  Things changed in the 1930s when Benito Mussolini forged a treaty with the Holy See, leading to the birth of the Vatican City, the smallest state in the world. To commemorate the reconciliation between the Italian State and the Holy See, the Via della Conciliazione was created. Using archival film and interviews with the last living eyewitnesses, this film relates the story of an architectural project that had enormous impact on the history, religion and lives of the people of Rome.

“Veloce Come Il Vento” (“Italian Race”), drama, 3:30 p.m. Saturday, April 29: The passion for racecars has always flowed in the veins of Giulia De Martino. She comes from a family that churned out racecar champions.  At the age of17 she will participate in the GT Championship under the guidance of her father, Mario.  But one day, everything changes and Giulia must face the racetrack and life all alone, until her older brother, Loris, returns and complicates the situation.
