ItalianAmerican. 1974. USA. Directed by Martin Scorsese. With Catherine Scorsese, Charles Scorsese. 35mm. 48 min.
Shot almost entirely inside the cozy Elizabeth Street apartment of Catherine and Charles Scorsese, this affectionate portrait of the filmmaker’s parents records the two natural storytellers recounting their family history and poking fun at each other, all while Catherine makes meatballs and gravy. (Her recipe is included in the end credits.)
