Film: "Death in Venice" (1971)


Location: Browning Cinema, DeBartolo Performing Arts Center


Adapted from Thomas Mann's original 1912 text, Death in Venice sits in the middle of Luchino Visconti's German trilogy (between The Damned and Ludwig) that came at the tail end of his illustrious career. Visconti draws heavily from Mann's vibe with a haunting element to the story of a sickly German composer who travels to Venice. There, his repression lifts and its void is filled with both a potential muse and obsession. Part of the series Learning Beyond the Classics: Early 70s Italian Cinema.
