Mamma Roma

(Pier Paolo Pasolini, 1962)

Fri, Jan 17, 2014 7 PM

The great actress Anna Magnani is Mamma Roma, an aging prostitute who attempts to extricate herself from her sordid past for the sake of her son. Indebted to the great tradition of Italian neorealism, Mamma Roma offers an unflinching look at the struggle for survival in postwar Italy. (111 mins., 35mm)
