Akragas Returns to Nazareth College!
Tuesday, October 8, 6 PM
Kaos, Taviani (1984)
Magic, drama, misery, and hope are given life in five tales adapted from Agrigento-native Luigi Pirandello's Novelle per un anno ("The Other Son," "Moonsickness," "The Jar," "Requiem," and "The Crow of Mizzaro"). With a strong, poetic vision of Sicilian life, the Tavianis imbue this epic masterpiece with a serene, sympathetic revelation of mankind that transcends the boundaries of time. Refreshments will be served.
"Kaos," Greek for chaos, is what the original Greek inhabitants of Agrigento (which they called "Akragas") called the forest outside the city where Pirandello was born.
