Anna Magnani - A Film Series. An all-celluloid special homage to a diva of the Italian cinema

Istituto Luce Cinecitta', CinemaItalia San Francisco and the Italian Cultural Institute are proud to present Anna Magnani - A Film Series, a special series of four 35mm prints of the most acclaimed movies of “Nannarella” at the Castro Theatre in San Francisco, as part of a major tour in the U.S. and Canada. In the Bay Area, the program will continue at the PFA from September 25 to November 30, 2016.

The day begins with Rossellini's neorealist war drama Open City (1:00pm), followed by Visconti's satirical spin on the movie industry - Bellissima (3:00pm). The evening's spotlight film is Daniel Mann's The Rose Tattoo (6:00pm), which garnered 3 Academy Awards, including Best Actress for Magnani.

Following The Rose Tattoo, a party inspired by the Rome of Anna Magnani will take place at 8:00pm in the Castro Theater's mezzanine. Finally, the series will conclude with Mario Monicelli's The Passionate Thief (10:00pm), starring Magnani and Totò.

All films will be presented with English subtitles.
