As part of its Outdoor Cinema 2014 season, Socrates Sculpture Park will be screening the Italian film Umberto D., directed by Vittorio De Sica. A neorealist masterpiece from De Sica (The Bicycle Thief), Umberto D.follows a few days in the life of the title character, a retired bureaucrat: the police break up his pensioners’ strike; a canteen hostess catches him feeding his lunch to his dog, Flike; his landlady threatens him with eviction; a sympathetic young maid reveals she’s pregnant; and pride quashes his attempts to beg in front of the Pantheon. Umberto D. is bursting with life – a heartfelt tale of a man struggling to hold onto his dignity in the face of ageism and a changing, postwar Italy.

Following Umberto D. will be Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer, with filmmaker Maxim Pozdorovkin in person. Rated R for explicit sexual content. Not appropriate for audiences under 17.

Directed by Maxim Pozdorovkin and Mike Lerner, Pussy Riot: A Punk Prayer tells the story of Russian punk-rock activists Pussy Riot--Katia, Masha, and Nadia--who staged a balaclava-masked performance at a Moscow cathedral (protesting the head of the Orthodox Church for supporting Putin's campaign) and earned the wrath of the regime. Their arrest and trial for "hooliganism" against the church follows. A fascinating documentary portrait of a courageous, defiant collective whose impact continues to be felt worldwide.

Outdoor Cinema is an annual international film festival that takes place every Wednesday evening in July and August. Focusing on a different country or culture each screening, this program invites visitors to picnic on the grass, see musical and dance performances, enjoy the waterfront breeze, and watch exceptional international films on an outdoor screen.
