Italian Cinema After 1968
ITAL 250
Spring 2007 not offered

This course, conducted in Italian, takes as its subject Italian cinema after the watershed year of 1968. We begin with several films of Pier Paolo Pasolini as well as other ¿political¿ filmmakers like Elio Petri, Gillo Pontecorvo, Francesco Rosi, and Lina Wertmuller. We will examine the works of auteurs like Gianni Amelio, Francesca Archibugi, Marco Ferreri, Gabriele Salvatores as well as the work of ¿the master of horror,¿ Dario Argento. How do the works of these filmmakers both reflect social change and engender it? How do the directors¿ formal choices inform their ideological positions?
