Lina Wertmüller

Carnal Farinata

Amuse-Bouche from Issue 11 – Summer 2017 – Heroines

In 1976, New York magazine crowned her “The Most Important Film Director Since Ingmar Bergman” and New Yorker critic Pauline Kael called her a misogynist. But Italian director Lina Wertmüller embraces her firebrand role; films like Seduction of Mimi and Seven Beauties (the first Best Director Oscar nod for a woman) are monuments of social satire, crisscrossing politics and sex in splashy, over-the-top fashion. Our farinata, an icon of la cucina povera, honors her deft balancing of high and low.
