Antonio Monda, NYU


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 second guest is the author and film critic Molly Haskell.

The selected films are:
Le Plaisir (1952) by Max Ophüls
Ludwig (1973) by Luchino Visconti
The Late Show (1977) by Robert Benton
Bring Me the Head of Alfredo Garcia (1974) by Sam Peckinpah
Le Amiche (The Girlfriends, 1955) by Michelangelo Antonioni
Robin and Marian (1976) by Richard Lester

Risate di gioia (The Passionate Thief, 1960) by Mario Monicelli
