UPDATE: Due to the COVID-19 lockdowns, this retrospectove has been postponed. New dates will be announced soon.

The films of Lina Wertmüller are screening on Sunday nights at Classic Cinemas and Monday nights at Lido Cinemas

Irreverent, rule-breaking and impossible to define, Italian filmmaker Lina Wertmüller broke ground as the first woman to be nominated for the Best Director Oscar in 1977. An unabashed feminist and non-conformist, her films take the absurdities of society and turn them on their heads – the results are sometimes witty, sometimes shocking, always political. We’re celebrating her work with seven of her best films.

Co-presented by Istituto Italiano di Cultura Melbourne.

Each screening includes a special introduction message sent to us by Wertmüller herself!
