On the occasion of the fiftieth anniversary of the devastating November 1966 flood in Florence, Italy, a rare showing of Franco Zeffirelli’s For Florence (Per Firenze) — the famed director’s sole documentary — shows the only known footage of the catastrophe and its immediate aftermath. Voiceover commentary is by actor Richard Burton. (Franco Zeffirelli, 1966, 16mm, 55 minutes) The screening is made possible through the cooperation of the Italian Cultural Institute, RAI, Franco Zeffirelli, and the University of Maryland Library.
