From May 2018 Fondazione Prada starts a dense cinematographic program presented in original language, transforming the Cinema at its Milan venue into a real movie theater.
La nuova programmazione è costituita da diverse sezioni: il venerdì “Soggettiva”, opere cinematografiche scelte da personalità provenienti da ambiti diversi invitati a condividere con il pubblico i loro film preferiti che hanno contribuito alla loro educazione culturale; il sabato “Indagine”, la sezione che ospita film inediti e prime visioni; la domenica “Origine”, film del passato restaurati e riproposti per la loro rilevanza storica e la loro attualità, grazie alla collaborazione con cineteche e produttori.
The new program is divided into sections: on Fridays “Soggettiva”, cinematographic works chosen by personalities from different environments, who have been invited to share with the public their favorite films as well as most significant ones for their cultural education; on Saturdays “Indagine”, the section featuring first releases; on Sundays “Origine”, restored films from the past, showcased again for their historical and present relevance, in collaboration with important film libraries and producers.
Section “Soggettiva” opens with the films selected by artist Damien Hirst, who picked a series of full-length features essential to his personal and creative formation. His selection includes Jason and the Argonauts (United Kingdom/United States, 1963) by Don Chaffey, Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (United States, 1971) by Mel Stuart, The Exorcist – Director’s Cut (United States, 1973) by William Friedkin, Eraserhead (United States, 1977) by David Lynch, presented in May and scheduled to continue throughout the summer.
