The 2017 Edition of Cinema Italia San Francisco
CoorItalia is one of the main sponsors of the 6th edition of Cinema Italia, a one day festival taking place at the iconic Castro Theatre in San Francisco.
Cinema Italia has been presenting classic movie programs since 2013 when the debut of the festival presented Pierpaolo Pasolini. The years after, the festival showcases movies with Bernardo Bertolucci; Vittorio De Sica; Anna Magnani; and Dino Risi. The 2017 edition represents a celebration of Lina Wertmüller, the groundbreaking, pioneering woman director and visionary whose fearless, polemical and provocative films have left indelible marks and influence on the international entertainment field.
This series will showcase the regional premieres of new 2K restorations of Lina Wertmüller’s most celebrated works: the film of operatic emotion and subversive comedy, Love and Anarchy; the controversial film about sex, love and politics – Swept Away; Seven Beauties – the Neapolitan tale nominated for four Academy Awards®, including Best Director (first time ever for a woman director); the raucous sex comedy The Seduction of Mimi. A special presentation of the documentary film profile Behind the White Glasses will be highlighted with the film’s director Valerio Ruiz in person.
