Screened September 16–23, 2018

Four legendary Italian helmers mine the vein of countryman and Decameron writer Giovanni Boccaccio’s tales. Fellini works in color for the first time with The Temptation of Doctor Antonio, starring Anita Ekberg as a billboard fantasy made flesh; Visconti’s The Job has Romy Schneider weighing emancipation options; and in De Sica’s The Raffle, Sophia Loren rigs a carnival lottery offering a date with her and sings “Money Money Money” (not the ABBA tune).

In Italian with English subtitles
