Image from the film Angela
Angela is a beautiful, young Sicilian woman married to a drug and jewel dealing mobster. Unlike most mob-wives, she participates in her husband’s business. Angela’s husband assigns one of the ‘gang’ to be her escort, which leads to a mutual attraction. She loves her husband but his position forces him to constantly deny his own true feelings – pushing Angela into a passionate and tormented affair. She eventually sacrifices everything for love…and is punished for it. Angela is the story of a woman and her life in the solitude of a world made of laws written by men. In Italian language with English subtitles. (35mm presentation)

Director Roberta Torre is scheduled to be present.

The screening is part of the Fourth Annual Film Symposium on New Trends in Modern and Contemporary Italian Cinema with Filmmaker Roberta Torre is presented by Indiana University’s Department of French and Italian. Support comes from the College of Arts and Sciences, Department of French & Italian, Mary-Margaret Barr Koon Fund, Olga Ragusa Fund for the Study of Modern Italian Literature & Culture, College Arts & Humanities Institute, Provost Lauren Robel, J.D., and Indiana University Cinema.
