Fondazione presents the fourth episode of its "Soggettiva" series. Part of its cinematographic program, “Soggettiva” invites personalities from arts and culture world to share with the public the films that have marked their personal and intellectual education.

Subtitled “Expressway Milano,” the new chapter of “Soggettiva” is a “cinematic journey into the rare and unknown” conceived by Nicolas Winding Refn and byNWR. The cinematographic program taking place at Fondazione’s Cinema on Fridays from March 1 to May 24, 2019 includes 13 American films divided in 4 volumes. All screenings will be free.

“Soggettiva Nicolas Winding Refn” will be presented on Friday, February 22, 2019 at Fondazione Prada’s Cinema. At 6pm, a conversation will take place between Nicolas Winding Refn, author/byNWR Managing Editor Jimmy McDonough, BUREAU Director David Frost, and the film critic Manlio Gomarasca, followed by the screening of Spring Night, Summer Night (1967) by Joseph L. Anderson. Entrance is free upon booking. The event will be lived streamed on Fondazione Prada’s Facebook and YouTube channels.

The talk will focus on Nicolas Winding Refn’s new adventure known as byNWR, a revolutionary online site which was first presented in 2018 and developed with London based agency BUREAU. As stated by Winding Refn, "What we’ve created is not a film, TV, fashion, photography, lifestyle or political site. It’s an installation, an online museum inclusive of everything. There’s a movie presented each month, but that film is merely the jumping off point. It’s the seed to inspire creativity, provoke a state of mind. The result isn’t easy to explain in a soundbite, you have to experience it. byNWR comes with a mystery attached."

byNWR’s selection for Fondazione Prada includes 13 forgotten 1960’s/1970’s American films—from drive-in movies titles to lost avant-garde cinema, horror and gothic fantasy films to musicals, “nudie cutie” movies to religious and propaganda cinema—divided in 4 volumes. Volume 1 titled “Regional Renegades” comprises The Nest of The Cuckoo Birds (1965) by Bert Williams, Hot Thrills and Warm Chills (1967) by Dale Berry and Shanty Tramp (1967) by Joseph P. Mawra.

(1972) by Ron Ormond, The Burning Hell (1974) by Ron Ormond and Spring Night, Summer Night (1967) by Joseph L. Anderson.
