• Perfetti sconosciuti (Perfect Strangers) by Paolo Genovese (26/01/2017 - 7:30 pm and 1/02/2017 - 10:15 pm)
Seven long-time friends get together for a dinner. When they decide to share with each other the content of every text message, email and phone call they receive, many secrets start to unveil and the equilibrium trembles.
• La pazza gioia (Like Crazy) by Paolo Virzì (29/01/2017 at 10:15 pm and 31/01/2017 at 5:30 pm)
Beatrice is a motor-mouthed fantasist, a self-styled billionaire countess who likes to believe she’s on intimate terms with world leaders. Donatella is a tattooed introvert, a fragile young woman locked in her own mystery. They are both patients at the Villa Biondi, a progressive but secure psychiatric clinic. An unpredictable and moving friendship develops between the two women as they flee the mental institution in search of love and happiness in the open-air nuthouse - the world of "sane" people.
• Lo chiamavano Jeeg Robot (They Call Me Jeeg Robot) de Gabriele Mainetti (03/02/2017 at 10:15 pm and 05/02/2017 at 5:30pm)
After a plunge into Rome’s toxic Tiber River, Enzo, a petty criminal, finds himself transformed into an indestructible, superhuman strongman. Against his own instincts, he becomes something of an avenging angel: the protector of an emotionally fragile, animeobsessed young woman who believes he is the robot hero of the 1970s manga series Steel Jeeg and the nemesis of a sadistic, ermophobic gangster.
