Italian Film Festival Havelock North - Stromboli

11 Joll Rd, Havelock North

The first collaboration between Roberto Rossellini and Ingrid Bergman is a devastating portrait of a woman’s existential crisis, set against the beautiful and forbidding backdrop of a volcanic island.

Lithuanian Karin (Bergman) flees her war-ravaged home country and winds up in an internment camp in Italy where she meets Antonio (Mario Vitale). Enjoying a brief romance, Antonio takes her back to Stromboli, the volcanic island he lives on, and Karin struggles with a language barrier, brutal living conditions and her outsider status.

Complex, visually creative drama - a landmark of film.

Classic Film and Television

Stromboli’s portrayal of marriage is trailblazing.
