A key title in the development of Francesco Rosi’s style of investigative thriller, The Mattei Affair focuses on the death of Enrico Mattei, an influential businessman who made enemies in the mafia. His story is interspersed with Rosi’s investigation into the disappearance of his friend, journalist Mauro De Mauro, who was undertaking research for the film. Driven by a thoughtful performance from Gian Maria Volontè, The Mattei Affair is one of Rosi’s finest works.
This screening will be followed by an informal post-screening discussion led by Adalgisa Serio, Italian Language Tutor CDLCI and Freelance Language Consultant.
