The Cinema of Francesco Rosi

THIS IS A 3-WEEK COURSE DURING SESSION I

The aim of this course is to study Francesco Rosi's cinematography, which includes an impressive number of individually celebrated films, which occupy a unique place in postwar Italian and world cinema. His seventeen feature films are known for their extraordinarily consistent formal balance and their unflinching look at the historical events and cultural traditions that have shaped the Italian national character. They thus represent a body of work of inordinate importance for both the cultural history of Italy since the fall of Fascism and for a realist theory of cinematic representation.
