Prof. Applauso was thrilled to host Antonio Dikele Distefano last night at Morgan State University where he presented and discussed his groundbreaking movie Autumn Beat. Mr. Distefano came a long way from Italy, and he is now on a tour around the U.S. He only made one stop in Maryland and we are grateful that it was in Baltimore. We are very grateful to the Italian Cultural Institute in D.C. for co-sponsoring this event, as well as the Dept. of World Languages, the SWAN, and the Dean's office at MSU. It was inspiring to see Italian 101 and 102 students interacting with the filmmaker, who gave some priceless advice to aspiring screenwriters.
