Our Lady of the Turks - screenings
directed by Carmelo Bene, 1968, 125 min
Introduced by Lydia Mancinelli
An imaginary autobiography, this film won the Special Jury Prize at the Venice Film Festival and triggered a public outcry. It is a short-circuit of images, words and music that denies all form of communication: "I don't want my films to communicate anything at all... I believe the time has now come... to revive a word that's cast into damnation these days: sentiment."
