Sicilia! [siˈtʃiːlja] is a 1999 Italian black-and-white film directed by Danièle Huillet and Jean-Marie Straub. Sicilia! follows a man returning to visit his native Sicily, after living in New York City for many years. The film is an adaptation of Elio Vittorini's anti-fascist novel Conversations in Sicily, which was first published in 1941.
Portuguese filmmaker Pedro Costa's documentary on Straub and Huillet, Où gît votre sourire enfoui? (alternately translated into English as Where Does Your Hidden Smile Lie? or Where Lies Your Hidden Smile?), was filmed while they were editing Sicilia!.
The film was screened in the Un Certain Regard section at the 1999 Cannes Film Festival. It was included in the 37th New York Film Festival (https:/wiki/List_of_films_shown_at_the_New_York_Film_Festival)
