Directed by Ermanno Olmi. This wise, gentle, observant Italian classic focuses on a poor, shy, small-town boy who moves to Milan to take a meager job in a big company. Falling for a co-worker, he tries to remain upbeat despite his lack of privilege and a future of almost certain anonymity. From the director of The Tree of Wooden Clogs. (Italy, 1961, subtitles, b&w, 35mm, 90 min.) Screening co-sponsored by the United Labor Agency and North Shore Federation of Labor.
