As semester 2 starts, we are resuming our Italy through its films screenings on Monday 28th January 2019 with The Seduction of Mimì (Mimì metallurgico ferito nell’onore) by Italian film director Lina Wertmüller, 1972.
Join us on Monday 28th January, in Lecture Theatre B at Avenue Campus at 6:15pm. The film is a deliberately offensive one, with explicit sex scenes in it. A riotous feminist farce about the Mafia, political radicalism and gender relations in 1970s Italy and definitely not a film for the faint-hearted! A sex comedy which seeks deliberately to offend morality and good taste, this is political filmmaking at its most unruly.
Here is Sergio Rigoletto’s film critique.
As always, the film will be introduced in English by Dr Louis Bayman, and a post-film discussion/reflection with the audience in English will be facilitated by Alessia Plutino.
We are looking forward to welcome those of you interested in the event, which is free and open to all.
