Borat heading to conquer Capri Hollywood

Borat, the smash cult-film hit of the autumn, will be previewed at the Capri, Hollywood International Film Festival on Friday, December 29. (

After opening to big box office and big laughs in the United States, the creation of British comedian Sacha Baron Cohen has spread to the United Kingdom and France, and now will come to Italy for the great festival on the Blue Island after a stop at the Festival of Rome. In the satirical film, subtitled “Cultural Learnings of America for Make Benefit Glorious Nation of Kazakhstan,” Cohen plays the part of a journalist from Kazakhstan who visits the United States and generates great fun at the expense of American culture. The film’s unexpected hit status will be to a center of debate at the Fiuggi Symposium, "Cinema, Where Are The Ideas?" that will involve authors, artists, sociologists and communication experts at Capri, Hollywood.

The screening of Borat further enriches the “Kimbo Premiere” program at the 11th annual festival. Other leading previews feature the new James Bond film, Casino Royale (December 28 and at that preview also the preview of 007 Royale Casinos (December 28 at Relais La Palma with an accompanying event hosted by Casino of Venice) and Raoul Bova’s Io, l'altro"(December 27).
