SAD HILL UNEARTHED, 2017, Zapruder Pictures, 86 min. Dir. Guillermo de Oliveira. Few movie locations are as iconic and memorable as the graveyard in which Sergio Leone’s epic Western THE GOOD, THE BAD, AND THE UGLY reaches its grand conclusion. Shockingly this 5,000-grave movie set located in the Spanish countryside was abandoned after the film, unprotected for nearly five decades. In this inspiring documentary, a group of fans sets out with shovels and wheelbarrows to restore the sacred space and create the ultimate destination for the movie’s devout followers across the world. Featuring interviews with legendary composer Ennio Morricone, director Joe Dante and Leone superfan James Hetfield of Metallica – along with a special appearance by the Man With No Name himself – SAD HILL UNEARTHED is a beautiful tribute to Leone’s masterpiece and a moving portrait of the collective nature of fandom. Best Motion Picture winner at the Sitges International Film Festival. In English, Spanish, French and Italian with English subtitles. Discussion following with director Guillermo de Oliveira and producer Luisa Cowell. Tickets include free admission to this evening’s screening of THE GOOD, THE BAD AND THE UGLY, pending availability.
