Gerard Amsellem will present Love and Anarchy at the West Orange Classic Film Festival!

Members of our Women Film Directors series will remember Lina Wertmüller as the director of Seven Beauties.  Now we're screening her 1973 classic Love and Anarchy.  Everyone is welcome, whether you are a member of La Cinémathèque or the West Orange Film Society or not!

The story, set in Fascist Italy before the outbreak of World War II, centers on Giannini's character, an anarchist who stays in a brothel while preparing to assassinate Benito Mussolini. Giannini's character falls in love with one of the women working in the brothel.
