Once upon a time there was a tiny hill town in Tuscany that found a remarkable way to confront their issues - they turned their lives into a play. "Spettacolo" is a portrait of this 50-year-old tradition, where their piazza becomes their stage and every villager from 6 to 90 plays a part - the role of themselves. As he did in the festival favorite "Marwencol," documentarian Jeff Malmberg finds an uncanny true-life subject where self-invented drama becomes the grandest form of artistic therapy.
