Glasgow Film Festival: Divas, Despots and Dancing: Assunta Spina with Live Score from The Badwills (N/C 12+). Glasgow Film Theatre. Glasgow.
Passion. Jealousy. Revenge. Join us for a rare screening of this silent Italian drama with a new live score by seven-piece band The Badwills. Assunta Spina stars Francesca Bertini, one of Italian cinema’s greatest ‘silent diva’ actresses, smouldering on-screen as she’s caught up in a violent love triangle. Complementing the film’s striking Neapolitan backdrop, this new score is co-commissioned by Glasgow Film Festival and A Kind of Seeing. Tambourines at the ready!

All followed by two mighty sets of foot stomping dancing tunes first from gypsy jazz maestros Viper Swing and wild southern Italian folk music from The Badwills.
