For week 4, the Film Society and Italian Social Club are becoming collaborators as we watch the infamous Bernardo Bertolucci’s visually seductive Italian-French-German political drama: The Conformist (1970) aka Il conformista!
Marcello Clerici (Jean-Louis Trintignant), a member of the secret police in Mussolini’s Fascist Italy, goes abroad to Paris for both his honeymoon and to arrange the assassination of his old college professor, a political dissident in exile. But when Marcello meets the professor’s young wife, he finds both his romantic and political loyalties tested.
To conform and watch it with us, just head to https://cytu.be/r/Film_Society next Wednesday night at 7:30 pm! You can text chat while watching or enjoy the film full screen, and after its finished we’ll switch over to Zoom for further discussion. Maybe we’ll see you there!
