A Special Screening of "Palio"

On March 31st from 6:30pm to 8:00pm, join us at the AICC for a special screening of Pailo — a documentary about the oldest horse race in the world that turns the Italian city of Siena into a high-stakes battleground of strategy, intrigue and simmering machismo. In the eye of the storm stand the jockeys – loved if they claim victory or violently despised if they fall short. PALIO follows the legendary maestro Gigi Bruschelli, winner of 13 races and master of the intrigues that surround the Palio, and Giovanni Atzeni, his former protégé and handsome young rival driven by a fearless passion to become number one. This heart-racing new documentary exposes the notoriously closed world of this ancient race and the larger-than-life personalities of those involved in an epic and cinematic tale of Italian life in microcosm.

Admission is a suggested donation of $10. Concessions will be available on site for purchase. Click here to reserve your tickets. To view the trailer of the documentary, click here.
