IFS Presents: 'Tale of Tales'

Tale Of Tales is a Felliniesque fantasy drama, distinguished by its lavish production design and very fluid camera work. The film may seem like a departure from director Garrone’s breakthrough feature Gomorrah (about feuding Mafia families in southern Italy) but takes a similarly picaresque approach to its subject matter.

Admission: $8 and the screening starts at 7:30 p.m. in the Muenzinger auditorium on Thursday, Sept. 8.
