SI PARLA ITALIANO:
Food, Coffee, Wine… and a little bit of Gambling
Narrated by AFI and Golden Globe winner Anthony LaPaglia, this funny, touching and overall fascinating documentary explores the historic heartland of an Italian community and the unique circumstances that transformed a country’s way of living and eating. After the disaster of World War II, a wave of Italian immigrants found their way to Australia– a strange place, suspicious of outsiders and completely devoid of a good cup of espresso. Fearing what they didn’t understand, Australians were suspicious of the new arrivals. Coffee made from odd machines and a food called ‘Pizza’ were all things to be wary of but it wouldn’t deter the passionate migrants. Simply, they re-‐created all the things they missed from home in one particular street that would assume the name ‘Little Italy’.
