Happy as Lazzaro
Director Alice Rohrwacher

A tobacco farm, run by the notorious Alfonsia De Luna, “Queen of Cigarettes”, cruelly exploits its workers. Among the impoverished sharecroppers is the saintly Lazarro, who dutifully obeys every command. However, when he meets the arrogant young marquis, Tancredi, his fortunes begin to change.
