JOE DANTE’S 16MM SPOTLIGHT
Joe Dante In Person!
HAIL, MAFIA!

Program begins with the cartoon “Bugs and Thugs” (1954, 7 min. Dir. Friz Freleng) Trying to hail a cab, Bugs Bunny steps into a getaway car with a gang of bankrobbers.

Introduction by Joe Dante.
HAIL, MAFIA!
JE VOUS SALUE, MAFIA!
1965, 90 min, France/Italy, Dir: Raoul Lévy

In the mid-1960s, veteran French producer Raoul Lévy hit the ground running as a director with a trio of star-studded adventures, including this criminally overlooked mob thriller with Henry Silva, Jack Klugman and Eddie Constantine. Silva and Klugman play unlikely NYC hitmen sent to Europe to hunt down international businessman Rudy Hamburg (Constantine), who is suspected to be a mafia informant. Shot by legendary French New Wave cinematographer Raoul Coutard, HAIL, MAFIA is a stunning road movie across the French countryside, as philosophical as it is suspenseful.


16mm prints from the personal film collection of Joe Dante and Jon Davison. Feature will be presented with breaks between reels.
