MEN OF THE CLOTH

Expected to Attend: Vicki Vasilopoulos, Nino Corvato, Joe Genuardi

WORLD PREMIERE Italians Nino Corvato, Joe Centofanti, and Checchino Fonticoli are master tailors who have spent years perfecting all the skills necessary to construct flawless custom-made suits for their clients in NYC, Philadelphia and Penne, Italy, a fascinating process broken down step by step here. As they grow older, they fear their Old World knowledge will vanish with them. Enter Joe Genuardi, a tailoring apprentice who reflects the resurgence of popular interest in artisanal craftsmanship as an alternative to corporate mass production, providing hope for the future of the craft.

NOTE: Both screenings are SOLD-OUT. Based on last-minute availability, a limited number of tickets may be released for sale 15 minutes before showtime on a first come, first served basis to patrons in the RUSH LINE.
