Nancy Savoca is one of the leading independent directors in the U.S. Her 1989 film True Love was hailed as "one of the 50 greatest independent films of all time" by Entertainment Weekly. Household Saints (1991) and Union Square(2012), among other films, reveal her skill in designing Italian American characters and stories that transcend common clichés. She will focus on the history of Italian Americans in film and the place of contemporary directors within it, especially with an eye towards the future. In-progress, completed, or planned projects will be discussed through selected film clips.

Sponsored and organized by the Inserra Chair in Italian and Italian American Studies (Department of Spanish and Italian) at Montclair State University. Co-sponsored by the Film Program, School of Communication and Media.
