Los Angeles-Italia fetes Bellocchio

Retro to run Feb. 20-26 at Mann's Chinese Theater

ROME — The Los Angeles-Italia Film Fashion and Art Fest will celebrate Italo auteur Marco Bellocchio, whose Fascist-era melodrama “Vincere” recently scored a National Society of Film Critics honor for protag Giovanna Mezzogiorno.

Bellocchio, who is expected to make the trek, will be feted with a retro during the sixth edition of the pre-Oscars Italo cinema showcase, which will run Feb. 20-26 at Mann’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

Headed by RAI journo Pascal Vicedomini, Los Angeles-Italia is a sister event of two Italian fests, Capri-Hollywood and Ischia Global, both dedicated to establishing a creative and business bridgehead between Hollywood and Italy’s film and showbiz communities.
