Program Notes

Cinema Paradiso (Italian: Nuovo Cinema Paradiso "New Paradise Cinema") is a 1988 Italian drama film written and directed by Giuseppe Tornatore. The music score was composed by Ennio Morricone along with his son, Andrea. The movie won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film at the 62nd Academy Awards.

In Rome, in the 1980s, famous Italian film director Salvatore Di Vita returns home late one evening, where his girlfriend sleepily tells him that his mother called to say someone named Alfredo has died in Salvatore's home village of Giancaldo, Sicily. Salvatore flashes back to his childhood as a star-struck six-year-old named Toto and the life lessons learned from Alfredo in his movie theatre, the Cinema Paradiso.
