Episode Description: On this week’s Little Italy of Los Angeles podcast,
Deborah Zara Kobylt talks with, beloved actor Michael Cavalieri, who wrote and directed his latest film, Ritornato, which tells the emotional story of a man who loses his loved ones, and sets off on a journey to revisit his past and fulfill a promise made to his dying mother. The film is shot in Sicily, and was recently chosen for a grant by the National Italian American Foundation.
