  • In the Name of the Father

    1971. Italy. Directed by Marco Bellocchio. With Yves Beneyton, Renato Scarpa, Piero Vida. A repressive Catholic boarding school takes care of the errant sons of the bourgeoisie with sadistic hard hands and no pedagogically legitimate goals. When a new boy arrives and seems capable of standing up to the chaotic regime, alliances are made and hopes of freedom rise—until divisiveness and fear create new hierarchies and fearsome demagogues. 2011 director’s cut. In Italian; English subtitles. 90 min.

  • Let’s Discuss

    1969. Italy. Directed by Marco Bellocchio. In this episode from the anthology film Amore e rabbia (Love and Anger), a group of students invade a classroom spouting Maoist slogans. The short, with Bellocchio himself as the professor, makes tangible the divisive political ambitions and impotent rage of the 1968 student revolt. In Italian; English subtitles. 24 min.
