Forgotten Gems is a series that takes place at Casa Italiana as part of the literary festival Le Conversazioni that focuses on films that the speakers believe worthy of being [re]discovered. Antonio Monda and his guest each choose three films to present and discuss (accompanied by clips). This season's third guest is the co-president and co-founder of Sony Pictures Classics Michael Barker.

The selected films are:
The Cardinal (1963) by Otto Preminger
The Sunchaser (1996) by Michael Cimino
The Chase (1966) by Arthur Penn
The Big Knife (1955) by Robert Aldrich
Let’s Dance (1950) by Norman Z. McLeod
Dreams (1990) by Akira Kurosawa and Ishiro Honda
