This event is the second 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), and the upcoming two guests will be authors Judith Thurman (March 1) and Mary Karr (April 13).

The selected films are:
Wanda (1970) – Barbara Loden
Sayat Nova (1969) – Sergei Parajanov
Girlfriends (1978) – Claudia Weill
Il Casanova di Federico Fellini (1976) – Federico Fellini
Born in Flames (1983) – Lizzie Borden
Heaven’s Gate (1980) – Michael Cimino

Easter Egg:
Young Frankenstein (1974) – Mel Brooks
