Italian Cinema - ITL306

This unit examines social and political reality in post-war and contemporary Italy through film. It looks at topical issues such as the mafia; the representation of women; regionalism; religion; language and dialect; migration; and consumerism as represented, explicitly and implicitly, in some of the best known films of Italian cinema. The films screened also offer an overview of the most important periods and genres in Italian film production, from neorealism to 'la Commedia all'Italiana', and introduce students to some of Italy's best known filmmakers.
