Pioneering independent filmmaker Nancy Savoca's 1989 New York wedding comedy True Love, featuring future Sopranos cast members Annabella Sciorra, Aida Turturro, and Vincent Pastore (that's Gloria, Janice, and Big Pussy respectively) screens at Chicago's fifth annual celebration of International SWAN Day (Support Women Artists Now), produced by the women's film organization WITASWAN. True Love was the first feature for Savoca and Sciorra, garnering Independent Spirit Award nominations for both of them, and winning the grand jury prize at the United States Film Festival, the forerunner to Sundance. Savoca will appear at the screening with her husband and writing/producing partner Richard Guay. Admission is $25 in advance, $15 for students and seniors, and $40 at the door, and includes a post-screening reception. It's Saturday from 12:30 to 4 PM at City North Theatre, 2600 N. Western.
