French and Italian | Italian Film and Culture: Contemporary Italian Cinema
M311 | 11813 | Vitti, Antonio Carlo


The objective of this course is to gain a better understanding of the
often complex mechanism of Italian politics, the intriguing regional
differences, and the civic and cultural development that have shaped
the Italian Republic since the end of terrorism. Through a
pluridisciplinary approach this course will explore how contemporary
Italian cinema has followed, mirrored, and often even anticipated the
cultural transformation and moments of crisis in Italian society.
During the semester 15 films will be screened. Students will learn how
to prepare a film analysis, will write short essays, and will lead
group and class discussions.

Joint-offered with CMCL-C 398 & WEUR-W 406.
Conducted in English.
