Lido Cinemas

The films of Lina Wertmüller are screening on Saturday afternoons at Classic Cinemas and at Lido Cinemas

Irreverent, rule-breaking and impossible to define, Italian filmmaker Lina Wertmüller broke ground as the first woman to be nominated for the Best Director Oscar in 1977. An unabashed feminist and non-conformist, her films take the absurdities of society and turn them on their heads – the results are sometimes witty, sometimes shocking, always political. We’re celebrating her work with seven of her best films.

Co-presented by Istituto Italiano di Cultura Melbourne.

Each screening includes a special introduction message sent to us by Wertmüller herself!
