This Sunday, set off to Italy with a showing of “The Missing Star” at the Cinema Paradiso in Fort Lauderdale. The monthly showing is part of Cafe Cinematheque International, a popular monthly foreign film series hosted by film expert Shelly Isaacs.
It all starts at 10 a.m. You get a scrumptious brunch – which includes canollis, tomato frittata and Italian bread with prosciutto – a movie, and a conversation all for $10.
“The Missing Star” is about an Italian machinist who finds his world view altered when he travels into the heart of China’s new industrial landscape with a young female guide. Issacs, an instructor of foreign film appreciation at FIU, facilitates the discussion.
