MILAN — Fondazione Prada in Milan is holding a film festival called “Flesh, Mind and Spirit,” a selection of 15 movies chosen by director Alejandro González Iñárritu and film critic Elvis Mitchell, running through Feb.1. Each film is assigned to a category distinguished by a keyword. Flesh features in “Fists in the Pocket, and “Aguirre, the Wrath of God,” while mind is seen in “I am Cuba,” “Last Year at Marienbad” and “You, the Living.” Spirit movies include “Mother and Son” and “Silent Night.”
“Despite this extremely eclectic selection, there is a common factor: these films are all experiences full of emotion,” said Iñárritu, who was just nominated for an Academy Award as best director for “The Revenant.” “All of them provoked in me appetites that I never knew I had.”
The selection will be screened free of charge at Fondazione Prada’s Cinema every day, expect Tuesdays. Advance booking is required.
