International Film Showcase – The Divine Order (Switzerland)

Sunday January 7, 2018  2:00 pm

Switzerland’s submission to the Foreign Language Film Award of the 90th Annual Academy Awards.

Political and religious leaders in Switzerland cited the Divine Order as the reason why women still did not have to right to vote as late as 1970. Director Petra Volpe explores this surprising history through the story of Nora, a seemingly unremarkable housewife from a quaint village who must learn to become an unflinching suffragette leader. After organizing the village’s first meeting to support women getting the right to vote, her family is mocked, bullied, and shunned. Despite the obstacles and backlash, Nora perseveres and convinces the village women to go on strike, abandoning their homes and families. A strong ensemble cast brings the story to its inspirational conclusion when Swiss women finally secure the right to vote in 1971. The Divine Order is a heartfelt and captivating film about regular people demanding their right to an equal voice.

Franc D’Ambrosio’s Broadway San Francisco’s Phantom Returns

Sunday January 28, 2018  3:00 pm

American singer/actor Franc D’Ambrosio brings “Songs of the Great White Way” to El Campanil Theatre in Antioch. Franc is best known for his role in the stage version of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Phantom of the Opera. Called “The Iron Man of The Mask”, Franc D’Ambrosio was awarded the distinction as the “World’s Longest Running Phantom”. Recognized for his vibrant voice and legato singing, D’Ambrosio also played the opera singing grandson in Godfather III and sang the Academy Award winning theme song, “Speak Softly Love” – both in the film and on the Original Motion Picture Soundtrack.

D’Ambrosio’s resume also includes an Academy Award Nominated film, an Emmy Award Nominated television show, four-time Tony nominated Broadway show, Two Grammy Considerations, and a National Theatre Award Nomination.

D’Ambrosio also caught the eye of Barry Manilow. In early 2000 Manilow personally selected him to create and star as the male lead, “Tony”, in the pre-Broadway tour of Copacabana. The show enjoyed a successful year long tour. His performance earned D’Ambrosio his National Theatre Award nomination for Best Male Performer in a Musical.

Franc D’Ambrosio has toured extensively throughout the United States, Europe and South America with his critically acclaimed one man shows: “Franc D’Ambrosio’s BROADWAY – Songs of The Great White Way” and “Franc D’Ambrosio’s HOLLYWOOD – Songs of The Silver Screen.”
