(Cristo si è Fermato ad Eboli)
a feature film by Francesco Rosi (Hands Over the City, Lucky Luciano, Salvatore Giuliano, The Mattei Affair)
with Gian Maria Volonté (A Fistful of Dollars, For a Few Dollars More, Sacco & Vanzetti, Investigation of a Citizen Above Suspicion), Lea Massari (L’Avventura, Murmur of the Heart), Irene Papas (Zorba the Greek)

Based on an autobiographical novel by Carlo Levi, Cristo si e fermato a Eboli stars Gian-Maria Volonté as Levi, a prominent anti-fascist author and artist who, during Mussolini's regime was exiled to Eboli, a tiny village in Southern Italy. The government believed Levi's controversial views would fall on deaf ears, but as he spent time in the small pastoral community, the simple wisdom of the peasants came to have a profound impact on Levi, and his beliefs would also impact the people of Eboli.
