This event is the third in a series of four events taking place at Casa Italiana this year as part of the literary festival Le Conversazioni that focus 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). The first guest was film critic Stuart Klawans (December 8), the second was author Leslie Jamison (February 2), while the final guest will be author Mary Karr (April 13).

The chosen films are:
Sans toit ni loi [Vagabond] (1985) by Agnès Varda
Four Friends (1981) by Arthur Penn
The Yakuza (1974) by Sydney Pollack
Toby Dammit (1969) by Federico Fellini
L’armata Brancaleone [For Love and Gold] (1966) by Mario Monicelli
Ivanovo detstvo [Ivan’s Childhood] (1962) by Andrei Tarkovsky

Easter Egg:
Pane, amore e…. [Scandal in Sorrento] (1955) by Dino Risi
