ODE TO THE WEST WIND: AN ONLINE PREVIEW AND DISCUSSION OF A SHORT FILM INSPIRED BY SHELLEY AT THE FESTIVAL OF DIPLOMACY
The Keats-Shelley House is pleased to announce its collaboration with Jitendra Mishra and Ulisse Lendaro for the preview of their new short film Human OAK in partnership with the Commonwealth Club of Rome. The film is inspired by Percy Bysshe Shelley's 'Ode to the West Wind', which this year celebrates the bicentenary of its publication. An Italo-Indian collaboration, the film was produced during the Covid-19 lockdown.
The event is included in the programme of the 11th edition of the Festival of Diplomacy, which will take place in Rome from 22 to 30 October 2020. The screening of the trailer will be followed by a discussion with the writers and producers, Ulisse Lendaro and Jitendra Mishra, and Giuseppe Albano, curator of the Keats-Shelley House. The event is hosted by Edward Mura, Chairman of the Commonwealth Club of Rome. Anna Valle, who stars in the film, will intervene with a video message. After the event there will be an aperitif with the British Ambassador to Italy Jill Morris at 5:30 p.m.
