The Society’s newest regional centre welcomed a capacity crowd of 160, which included the island’s Lieutenant Governor, Sir Richard Gozney, and the film’s director and writer, Marco Petrucco.

Brothers of Italy, which was shot on the Isle of Man last year and made by London-based Hoofprint Productions, was inspired by the story of Petrucco’s Italian grandfather, Sante, who was held in an internment camp on the island during the second world war.
