Divas, Despots and Dancing: Assunta Spina (1915)

Following Glasgow Film Festival’s premiere of this silent Italian drama with a new score by Southern Italian folk band The Badwills, this special roundtable discussion with film clips explores the film’s revival at a key moment when there is worldwide focus on gender politics and social justice.

ASSUNTA SPINA stars Francesca Bertini, one of Italian cinema’s greatest ‘silent diva’ actresses smouldering onscreen as she’s torn between the men who can’t control her passions.

Followed by a roundtable discussion chaired by Dr Enza De Francisci (Translation Studies) with:

• Dr Eanna O'Ceallachain (Italian Studies)
• Dr Melanie Selfe (Film and Television Studies)
• Dr Katharine Mitchell (Italian Studies, University of Strathclyde)
• Dr Alastair Cole (The Badwills / Film Practice, Newcastle University)
• Shona Thomson (A Kind of Seeing).
