The Films of Lina Wertmüller
During the 1970s, Lina Wertmüller emblazoned her name into the pantheon of Italian cinema with a series of intensely polemical, deeply controversial and wonderfully entertaining films. Among the most politically outspoken and iconoclastic members of the second generation of postwar directors, Wertmüller was also one of the first female directors to win international recognition and acclaim, becoming the first woman to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director in 1977.
Presented here are seven films by the first woman every nominated for the Academy Award for Best Director, plus Valerio Ruiz's definitive documentary on the Italian master, BEHIND THE WHITE GLASSES.
