|Clark Art Screens 'Love and Anarchy'|

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — On Thursday, March 30 at 6 pm, the Clark Art Institute screens "Love and Anarchy" in its auditorium, located in the Manton Research Center.
The showing is the third event in the Clark's five-part series, Manton 50th Anniversary Film Series: Films of 1973, featuring some of the great cinematic highlights of a remarkable year.
According to a press release:
A tragicomedy from director Lina Wertmuller, "Love and Anarchy" (1973; 2 hours, 2 minutes), plumbs the depths of fascist Italy from the perspective of a simple farm boy sent to kill Mussolini. Giancarlo Giannini won the best acting prize at the Cannes Film Festival for his achingly sensitive portrayal of Tunin, a freckle-faced innocent who becomes an accidental anarchist. A film of operatic emotion and subversive comedy, Love and Anarchy is a powerful statement on the terror of fascism and the ignoble fates of those who challenge it.
Admission to the Clark is free through March 2023. No registration is required.
