Featuring interviews with collaborators like Giancarlo Giannini and Sophia Loren, as well as admirers like Martin Scorsese and Harvey Keitel, this poetic documentary celebrates the life and career of a cinema visionary. 

Shown in conjunction with the film course Swept Away: The Films of Lina Wertmüller, this screening will be introduced by the course’s instructor, Maurizio Giammarco, Ph.D.
