A spotlight on Italian maestro Lina Wertmüller, the visionary and groundbreaking Italian writer-director who worked side by side with Federico Fellini and went on to make more than 30 films. Giancarlo Giannini, Marina Cicogna, Sophia Loren, and many more speak on the celebrated director.

MUBI's take

In 1977, Lina Wertmüller became the first woman to receive an Oscar® nomination for Best Director. This playful documentary—titled after its subject’s 5,000-strong collection of eyewear—takes to the road for a journey through five decades of Italian cinema with one of its greatest practitioners.
