Banned Italian prostitute film to be screened tonight
A film about an Italian prostitute which was once banned is to be screened at Londonderry’s Magic Lantern Film.
The film society will be screening ‘Nights of Cabiria,’ Federico Fellini’s film about the travails of a Roman sex worker, which will be the last in its series of formerly banned films.
Regarded as the most humanistic of Fellini’s pictures, Nights of Cabiria is a heartbreaking and tragic portrayal of empty hopes and features arguably the greatest performance by Giulietta Masina.
The screening of the film, initially banned in Italy to under 16s, will take place at the city’s Nerve Centre at Magazine Street, tonight at 7.30pm, admission £4.
