The event will take place on November 16, 2022 at the Flamingo Cinema Theater in Caoliveri.

Il Colibrì, a film directed by Francesca Archibugi, recounts the life of Marco Carrera (Pierfrancesco Favino), narrated through the man's memories in a life journey that starts in the early 1970s. While at the seaside, a young Marco meets a girl his age, Luisa Lattes, a beautiful girl with a peculiar temperament. It is love at first sight, and although the two will never have a chance to be together, Marco will remain forever in love with her. His life partner will, in fact, be another woman, Marina, with whom after marriage he will go to live in the capital and by whom he will have a daughter, Adele.
The man will have to return to Florence, however, because of an existence that will subject him to hard trials, which he will try to overcome with the help of Daniele Carradori, his wife's psychoanalyst. The doctor will teach Marco how to deal with changes, especially completely unexpected ones, in his life. This is how, through Marco, the man's existence is told as he vacillates between great loves, fortuitous coincidences and serious losses, leading the human being to a wearisome resistance in order to achieve happiness.
