Italian filmmakers at New York City's inaugural SoHo International Film Festival

New York, NY – February 21, 2010 – The inaugural 2010 SoHo International Film Festival - presented by Made In New York and the Office of New York Mayor, Michael Bloomberg, will be held from February 18 – 21, 2010 in New York City.

Commencing with Italian feature film by Director Mariano Lamberti, "Non Con Un Bang" is a dramatic comedy which melds two archetypes: Franz Kafka meets Enrico Caruso. By the shadow of ominous corked-up volcano Mount Vesuvius, slayer of Pompeii in AD 79, a seemingly well-bred and well-heeled suburban kid finds himself, much like the volcano itself, corked-up and trapped within his well-planned-in-advance existence. Unlike Kafkaesque anti-hero Gregor Samsa, he does not literally turn into an insect, but, much to his chagrin and confusion, his spirit starts morphing into one.

Francesco Colangelo's dramatic short film, "Il Male Assoluto" which remembers forty years of Francesco's life as it triumphs through adversity and violence. Majestically filmed and set to a stirring piano sequence, it is a stunning short commentary.

“We are honored to present the World Premiere of Mariano Lamberti's feature film, "Non Con Un Bang", it is a unique, thought provoking film with a universal message. Francesco Colangelo's short film "Il Male Assoluto" is a compelling and inspiring love story. Both of these films, truly reflect the spirit of the SoHo International Film Festival, and we are proud to have them here in our inaugural year," said SIFF Co-founders, Luis Pedron and Jorge Ballos.
