Add Some Movie to Your Dinner 

Americans have embraced Italian food almost as if it's our own, eating pizza, slurping spaghetti and popping arancini like natives. We are somewhat less well versed when it comes to the country's other offerings. Sure, we're aware that fashion is a big deal in Italy, and we're familiar enough with the work of the Renaissance painters, but we could certainly stand to know a bit more. The Italian Film Festival provides an entertaining opportunity to fill in some of our missing information. Though not necessarily produced to be ambassadors of culture, the films in the fest were chosen to shed light on what being Italian means today — and they provide a bit of free fun for three straight weekends. The festival runs from Friday, April 9, through Saturday, April 24, with films screening at 8 p.m. on Fridays and at 5 and 8 p.m. on Saturdays. Appropriately, Brown Hall (room 100) on Washington University's campus (Forsyth and Skinker boulevards) offers an academic setting for our studies. To learn more and view the schedule, visit
Fridays, Saturdays. Starts: April 9. Continues through April 24, 2010
