Sagan om björnarna som erövrade Sicilien - Biografen Zita

The Italian Cultural Institute, in collaboration with Institut français de Suède, Rex Animation Film Festival and TriArt, presents the Swedish premiere of "Sagan om björnarna som erövrade Sicilien" (The Bears' Famous Invasion of Sicily), an Italian-French animated film directed by Lorenzo Mattotti. It was selected to be screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival.

Lorenzo Mattotti is one of the most important Italian comics artists, illustrators, filmmaker and screenwriter. His works have been published in the most important magazines, such as The New Yorker, Le Monde, Das Magazin, and his books are translated all over the world.

Toni Servillo, Antonio Albanese, Linda Caridi, Corrado Guzzanti e Andrea Camilleri collaborated in the Italian version of the movie by voicing the characters.

The movie is based on "The Bears' Famous Invasion of Sicily", an Italian children's book written and illustrated by Dino Buzzati in 1945. It tells the story of an armed conflict between the bears and humans of Sicily. It is written in novel format, with a great deal of poetry and illustrations as well.

The event is part of "20th Week of the Italian Language in the world", which this year is dedicated to "The Italian among words and images: graffiti, illustrations, comics" and it is carried out under the Alto Patronato del Presidente della Repubblica.
