This selection of extremely rare short films, including Il Mostro Verde, which features Merz’s Living Sculpture, reveals the exciting, eclectic collaborations among painters, poets, directors, and theater actors in 1960s Italy. Films by Tonino De Bernardi and Paolo Menzio and artists such as Ugo Nespolo and Luca Maria Patella highlight an adventurous underground cinema influenced by Arte Povera in Turin, the experimental films of Cooperative Cinema Indipendente in Rome, and the American avant-garde and independent film scene.

Copresented by Archivio Nazionale Cinema d’Impresa, CSC-Cineteca Nazionale

Additional films will be screened at the Istituto Italiano di Cultura, Los Angeles.
