Every Sunday afternoon in August, The Loft Cinema celebrates the wild and wonderful world of Italian cinema by presenting a different Spaghetti Western classic, including For a Few Dollars More and Djanjo Kill, on the big screen! Each screening will feature a live introduction by acclaimed filmmaker and genre expert Alex Cox (Repo Man, Sid & Nancy, Walker)! All screenings start at Noon, and Italian snacks will be available for sale!

Directed by Carlo Lizzani (Wake Up and Kill) and featuring a superbly haunting soundtrack by Riz Ortolani (Day of Anger), Requiescant – Latin for “Rest in Peace” – ranks among the finest, most overtly allegorical of the non-Zapata Spaghetti Westerns.

Lou Castel (A Bullet for the General) plays a young man raised to be a pacifist by a travelling preacher after Confederates massacre his family. But when his stepsister runs away, the pursuit reveals a natural talent as a sharp-shooter as well as a bloody and an unexpected confrontation with his past. Joining Castel in the film are an impressive array of performers including Mark Damon (Black Sabbath) as the sadistic aristocratic villain, Franco Citti (The Godfather) as his wicked henchman, and legendary Italian filmmaker Pier Paolo Pasolini (Teorema) in a rare acting role as a revolutionary priest. This thrilling, thought-provoking political Western was named by director Alex Cox as “the one film to prove that the Italian Western was not solely Sergio Leone’s.”
