Seven iconic Italian directors use actors present a collection of short film created to the theme of ‘love in Rome’.

Paid Love
Filmed by Carlo Lizzani, seven Roman prostitutes of different age, some of them single mothers, tell their “”stories of abandonment and deceit””.

Attempted Suicide
Five young women, who have tried to commit suicide after being left by their partner, tell and re-enact their stories in front of Michelangelo Antonioni’s camera.

Paradise for Three Hours
Dino Risi depicts the various encounters at a dance hall event which takes place every Sunday evening between 5 and 8.

Marriage Agency
Federico Fellini tells the story of a journalist doing research on marriage agencies, pretending to be looking for a wife for a rich friend who suffers from lycanthropy. To his surprise, he is presented with a prospect only a few days later.

Story of Caterina
Francesco Maselli and Cesare Zavattini follow Caterina, a young single mother ostracised by her parents, who is put on trial for abandoning her child which she can’t feed.

Italians Stare
A sequence of men reacting to the passage of pretty women, filmed by Alberto Lattuada.

This screening is presented by Italian Cultural Association Exeter.
