Screened September 15–19, 2018

Six frequently melancholic stories of love drawn from news items lead off with Lizzani’s Love for Pay, a documentary-style look at streetwalkers; Antonioni interviews despondents’ Attempted Suicide; Risi’s Paradise for Three Hours unites two loners; in Fellini’s segment, Marriage Agency, a muckraking reporter infiltrates said business; Story of Caterina headlines Caterina Rigoglioso (in her only film) in a downbeat neo-realist tale; and watching the girls go by is the subject of Italians Turn Their Heads.

In Italian with English subtitles
