Italian Cinema Annual l Douglas Kirkland

The annual celebration of Italian cinema opened with Italy’s official Oscar submission for Best Foreign-Language Film, Emanuele Crialese’s topical drama TERRAFERMA at the Egyptian on Friday November 11 and welcomed director Terry Gilliam in person with his new filmette “The Wholly Family”.

Every year Douglas and Francoise host a lunch at their house in the Hollywood Hills and photograph the visiting directors and actors in his studio.

This year’s luncheon coincided with the resignation of Berlusconi on November 12 which made for a very lively party!
