“The news of his death sent ripples through the festival and the Italian film community. The festival canceled its early-evening press cocktail reception, and festival artistic director Deborah Young said she would make an announcement and call for a moment of silence in honor of Brunette before the evening’s screening in the Teatro Antico.”

Our thoughts go out to his family and friends.
