Vale Lina Wertmuller (1928-2021)

News has just arrived that Italian director Lina Wertmuller has died. You can read about it here in The Guardian.

Wertmuller was a living force of nature and her films have endured. Cinema Reborn was a partner  with the Italian Cultural Institute in a seriously good and very well received season of Wertmuller's films at the Randwick Ritz earlier this year. Critics, scholars and cinephiles Jane Mills and Blythe Worthy did a whole host of work to get the show on the road, including arranging for speakers at each of the seven sessions.

A number of the introductions were also published on the Film Alert blog and you can find them if you click on these links below
