What happens when a huntress falls in love with her prey? Based on Robert Sheckley’s 1953 short story, The Tenth Victim is a 1965 film directed by Elio Petri about a futurist society in which war is outlawed but death and violence are a government-sanctioned sporting event knows as “the Hunt.” Spend an evening immersed in textiles, first through a 5pm tour of Made in Italy: MITA Textile Design 1926–1976 at The Wolfsonian, then through the silver-plated bikinis, geometric cut-outs, and two-toned motifs in The Tenth Victim across at the street at the Cinematheque at 6pm.
