Excellent start in the new year for the promotion of our Italian cinema abroad, as the new season in 2005 opens with an exceptional American tribute to Italian cinema.
For the first time ever, the prestigious Film Society of Lincoln Center will host a film retrospective entirely dedicated to an Italian actor
Beginning January 28th, Sergio Castellitto, described in the New York Times as the new Mastroianni and icon of high calibre Italian cinema, will be the man of the hour, in a series of screenings which will run for ten days at the Walter Reade Theater in New York. He will be presenting a selection of his films from 1985 up until today, which represent a lively and diversified itinerary of over 50 titles taken from cinema and tv that are part of his extensive filmography.
The review was organized by AIP-Filmitalia and New York’s Lincoln Center, in collaboration with the Italian Cultural Institute of New York , and under the supervision of the director of the New York Film Society, Richard Peña as well as, Antonio Monda. Besides the programmed screenings, there will be a number of discussions planned, which will be open to the public, along with the film students from New York University.
