Italian Studies & Film Studies join to bring a restored Italian cult silent film to campus

Satan’s Rhapsody (1915) is a Faustian tale about an old woman who makes a pact with Mephisto to regain her youth, in return she must stay away from love. The film, directed by Nino Oxilia and starring Lyda Borelli, is one of the finest achievements of the early Italian cinema. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with Guy Borlée, coordinator of Il Cinema Ritrovato, the international film festival of the city of Bologna, Italy. The event will take place on Thursday, March 16 at 7pm in the Cloobeck Screening Room.
