(1974, Italy) Written and directed by Lina Wertmüller.
Cast: Luigi Diberti, Lina Polito, Nini Bignamini, Sara Rapisarda.

In a nod to her mentor Federico Fellini, All Screwed Up is a funny, tragic look at a group of young people from the countryside who move to Milan to make it big – or at least be able to fill their tenement apartments with plastic flowers. 105 min
“Be a witness to a giant talent that won’t be cut down to size by apprehensions of whether or not something is in good taste.” – Vincent Canby, New York Times.

Lina Wertmüller the first woman to win an Academy Award® Best Director nomination, richly deserves this retrospective of her provocative and trailblazing 50-year career, with two screenings each of six new restorations of her best films, and a new documentary about her life and work.
