ITAL 255 - Four Italian Filmmakers (in English)

1 unit(s)
(Same as FILM 255 ) Close analysis of the narrative and visual styles of Bernardo Bertolucci, Federico Fellini, Gianni Amelio and Nanni Moretti, in the context of post-war Italian cinema and culture. Theoretical literature on these directors and on approaches to the interpretation of film-such as psychoanalytic film theory, feminist theory, deconstruction, and post-colonial analyses of dominant discourses-aid us in addressing questions of style and of political and social significance. Cinematic interpretive skills are developed through visual and linguistic exercises, group projects, and film-making. Conducted in English. Rodica Blumenfeld.

Open to sophomores, juniors, and seniors. May be counted towards the Italian major.

Not offered in 2017/18.

Two 75-minute periods and two film screenings.
