From the great Italian director Marco Bellocchio comes the historical true story of Edgardo Mortara, the Jewish child who in 1858 was abducted by the Vatican in Bologna. When he was a baby, he was baptized in secret by the family’s maid out of fear that he would die from an illness. Removed from his home when he was six years old, Edgardo was raised a Catholic despite his anguished parents and the international Jewish community’s harrowing fight to have him returned.

This screening will be shown only in-theatre.

Underwritten by Jo-Ann & Arnold Jacobson.
