Open Roads: New Italian Cinema, is a yearly explosion of Italian cinema fun from The Film Society of Lincoln Center and Istituto Luce Cinecittà, this year from June 2-8.
Tickets go on sale Thursday, May 12. A pre-sale to Film Society members will begin Tuesday, May 10, but in the meantime, I’ll be sharing reviews of the films and other information to help you decide what you just can’t miss out on.
Check back for my review of the opening film, Io E Lei (Me, Myself and Her) from director Maria Sole Tognazzi.
