Divas, Despots and Dancing: Assunta Spina



Divas, Despots and Dancing: Assunta Spina

The University of Glasgow’s School of Modern Languages and Cultures is delighted to present Divas, Despots and Dancing: Assunta Spina – a discussion event with screening of the rare 1915 silent Italian film "Assunta Spina" being premiered at Glasgow Film Festival 2018.

This public event offers an opportunity to explore one of Italian cinema’s recently rediscovered great works restored by the Cineteca di Bologna. It will be an innovative cross-pollination between academic, artist and curator — a key moment when there is worldwide focus on gender politics and social justice.

The first half of the session will screen the film with The Badwills’ soundtrack recorded during the Glasgow Film Festival. The second part will be a post-performance discussion with scholars from different fields, creating new connections within the Italian discipline. Participants include Dr Eanna O'Ceallachain (Italian, Glasgow); Dr Enza De Francisci (Translation Studies, Glasgow); Dr Lizelle Bisschoff (Film and Television Studies, Glasgow); Dr Katharine Mitchell (Italian, Strathclyde); Dr Alastair Cole (Film Practice, Newcastle); and Simone Caffari (musician in The Badwills).
