JUNE 2015 at the SALON

presented by Michael DiLauro

La Mia Strada-(My Road) is a feature-length documentary that offers a personal perspective on ethnicity and tradition as it links ancient and contemporary Italian culture with its Italian-American counterpart.  It’s a discovery of how fragile the bonds are that connect a family from generation to generation, from country to country, even as they search for ways to adapt to an ever-changing world.  Over a period of years, the filmmaker has conducted dozens of interviews, explored historical sites, sifted through archaeological artifacts, dug through family photographs, and immersed himself in the music, poetry, and oral histories of the Abruzzi, Molise and Puglia regions.  La Mia Strada links the ancient and contemporary history of families divided by an ocean, yet united by an indelible genetic bond.

Michael DiLauro is a five-time Emmy Award-winning filmmaker.  He is currently Director of the Academic Media Center and Associate Professor of Media Arts at Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
