Padre Padrone

ASU Film Society continues its film series, Cross-Cultural Perspectives on Childhood, with Padre Padrone, a landmark Italian film, directed by the Taviani brothers in 1979. Based on an autobiographical book by Gavino Ledda, Padre Padrone is the tale of a sad, illiterate boy from Sardinia. Brutalized and victimized by his peasant father, he still grows up to master Greek and Latin and become a famous writer.
