Mal'occhio; the Evil Eye

Broadcast date: Saturday, August 20 at 7pm This playful documentary follows the journey of a young Montrealer of Italian origins as she seeks to uncover the truth about the origin and power of the Evil Eye. The journey takes her from her mother's kitchen in Montreal to New York and to the small village in Italy where her family comes from. Agata De Santis creates a charming and humourous portrait of the enduring strength of this cultural belief. Learn more about Mal'occhio here. Monday July 11, 2011
