Screening of "La Cena" by Ettore Scola



Screening of

settimana cucina 2016

On the occasion of the 1st Week of Italian Food in the World, (November 14 - 20, 2016),

the Italian Cultural Institute is pleased to present the screening of

The Dinner (La Cena, 1998, 124 min), directed by Ettore Scola

Monday, November 14th at 6pm

Italian Cultural Institute  -  500 N Michigan Avenue, Suite 1450

An evening at an Italian restaurant. Hosted by tolerant and relaxed Flora, various parties of middle-class people come in -- large and small, young and old, regulars and tourists, married and single -- to dine, converse, argue, celebrate, make confessions; to overhear other people's discussions, to interrupt them, to sing, listen to music, and enjoy life. The camera, just like the people, moves constantly from table to table, into the kitchen and the back room to observe the staff's petty jealousies and frustrations -- until two hours later it's time for everybody to go home.

Presented in collaboration with Cinecittà Luce.

Free and open to the public.
