 (2017, Italy) Written and directed by Valerio Ruiz. With: Lina Wertmüller, Giancarlo Giannini, Martin Scorsese, Sophia Loren, Mariangela Melato, Rutger Hauer.

Don’t miss this personal, revealing portrait by Valerio Ruiz, Wertmüllers longtime assistant, beginning with her job as an assistant director to Federico Fellini on 8½. It takes us to the places where her most famous films were set, revealing the universe of a woman who, with her unfailing irony and taste for the grotesque, has left her indelible mark in cinema. 104 min.

“One of the shining lights of European cinema…her films were crammed with pointed humor, astute social commentary, and outrageous sexuality.” – Rob Edelman, New Yorker.
