Film Forum To Present ‘In The Mouth Of The Wolf’

By Francisco Salazar

For one-night Film Forum will present “In the Mouth of the Wolf.”

On Jan. 22 the theater will present the exclusive event. According to Film Forum’s website the film tells the story, “in Parma, near the birthplace of the revered composer Giuseppe Verdi, even the street-sweepers and cops sing opera, while soprano Margherita Roberti (née Margaret Jean Roberts in Davenport, Iowa), star of a new production of ‘Luisa Miller,’ frets about the notoriously tough pubblico parmigiano.”

“In the Mouth of the Wolf” was directed and edited by Robert Morgan and produced and written by J.C. Sheers. Following the screening of the film, August Ventura will present excerpts from his forthcoming film documenting Parma’s still-going-strong Verdimania, and will chat with filmmaker, author and NYU professor George Malko, co-producer of “In the Mouth of the Wolf.”
