Salvatore Di Giacomo’s “Assunta Spina” is screened with live musical accompaniment by composer John T. La Barbera and La Barbera’s String Trio. Filmed on location in Naples in 1914, the silent film was produced and released by Caesar Film in 1915 in Italy. It features the Queen of Italian silent screen Francesca Bertini, who is credited with directing the film together with her co-star, Gustavo Serena. It is an operatic tale of love and sacrifice in working class turn of the century Naples, considered to be one of the first films of Italian Neorealism.
