Settimana della lingua italiana nel mondo - XVII edizione. Nanni Moretti's Retrospective

The prestigious Manhattan venue for cinema d'essai Metrograph presents a retrospective of the Italian Award winner director Nanni Moretti. Screenings will be followed by Q&A with the Director.

La Settimana della lingua italiana nel mondo is under the High Patronage of the President of the Italian Republic.

One of the great international film traditions, the Italian cinema weathered hard years through the late 1980s and 90s, but in the person of Nanni Moretti it has had its great and indefatigable torchbearer. Anxiety over decline—of a leftist resistance, of a non-commercial cinema, of plain old aging and human frailty—is essential to Moretti’s films, which often find him front and center as alter-ego Michele Apicella, but in his hands this becomes the stuff of bittersweet comedy. Documentary and fiction form, ideological seriousness and absolute irreverence—all mix and mingle in these remarkable movies that can only be labelled as “Moretti.”
