Cinema Italian Style'17 In LA Brings Film SLAM

Andrea Molaioli's "Slam" is one of the films which will be of 2017's Cinema Italian Style.

A slam is a hard fall in skateboarding.

Sam (16) spends his days skating with his friends, doing jumps and tricks, and taking the odd spill; he also nurtures a completely imaginary friendship with his hero, Tony Hawk the best skater of all time.

He would love to go to university, to travel, maybe even to live in California and pursue the dream of becoming a professional skater.

But more than anything, he would love to be the first in his family not to fall into the trap of having a baby at 16, which ended up happening to both his mother and his grandmother.

By the way, it’s hard to avoid the one sole destiny that runs in your family.

Cinema Italian Style’17, a film festival  and an annual celebration of Italian cinema, co-presented by the American Cinematheque and Luce Cinecittà at the Egyptian and Aero Theatres  in Los Angeles, November 16-21, 2017, will be presenting 11 Italian movies,

"Slam" by Andrea Molaioli which will be playing on Nov. 18 at Cinema Italian Style.
