The seventh installment of the Michele Giannattasio Lecture Series at Swinging Sixties Senior Center (211 Ainslie Street) will feature the 2017 documentary Frank Serpico on September 18 from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. The film’s director, Antonino D’Ambrosio, will be present to discuss the film and Joseph Sciorra, PhD of the Calandra Institute will emcee. Admission is free.

The Associated Press (AP) summed up, “[The] documentary Frank Serpico” sees former NYPD police officer Frank Serpico take on Al Pacino (who played him in 1973 movie Serpico), Donald Trump and the NYPD.” If that sound bite bites your interest enough to push you through the door, you’ll find the full journey this documentary takes you on will keep you in your seat. 1973 film may have made him mononymous, but Frank Serpico is more than just a nutshell section of his life that inspired that movie.
