The Innocent and the Damned: The films of Luchino Visconti is now showing at GOMA
Born into the luxuriance of Milanese aristocracy, Visconti would nevertheless begin his career by crafting deeply sympathetic portrayals of the downtrodden in early neorealist classics.

Endlessly dynamic, his later output grew more openly lurid and psychosexual, with the ...

The Volvo Scandinavian Film Festival returns this month!
