4:00PM - Italianamerican - Director: Martin Scorsese
This highly personal and often hilarious early film by Martin Scorsese focuses on his Sicilian immigrant parents, Catherine and Charlie, and their everyday lives in New York City. Idiosyncratic and endearing, his parents are engaging story-tellers who discuss life in Italy, family, religion — and, of course, how to make marinara sauce and meatballs. His mother’s recipe appears over the end credits, so bring a notebook. (1974; 60 min.)

Debuting at Cannes the year after Cardiff’s death, this documentary explores the legacy of one of the most influential figures in cinematic history. (2010; 90 min.)
