Confronting the Past
Italian Film Classics of the 1970s

We're pleased to present three films by three of Italy's most esteemed directors. All were made in the 1970s from the beginning of the decade to the end, and all confront, in different ways, Italy's history of fascism under Giovanni Gentile and Benito Mussolini and the post-war Italian Social and neo-fascist movements.
