The Kingston Canadian Film Festival Presents ROAD TO THE LEMON GROVE
Director: Dale Hildebrand
Featuring: Charly Chiarelli, Burt Young, Rossella Brescia, Loreena McKennitt
Language: English; Sicilian subtitled in English
Runtime: 89 minutes
Directed by Dale Hildebrand and adapted by Charly Chiarelli from his hit one-man show, ROAD TO THE LEMON GROVE serves up a wealth of insights about the Italian-Canadian – or rather Sicilian-Canadian – experience along with all the beautiful scenery and big laughs that viewers could demand. There’s also a valuable message about the importance of cultural reconnection in the story of Antonio (Chiarelli), a hapless man who comes to Sicily to carry out his deceased father’s wish to have his ashes spread in the lemon groves of his youth. Scheming relatives, a glamorous movie star and his father’s pesky ghost (also played by the multi-tasking Chiarelli) add to the list of complications on Antonio’s quest in this boisterous comedy.
To mark our 20th anniversary, we’re launching the Live the Experience Fund that will provide tickets for local schools and community groups to attend the Festival and live the experience first hand.
