Special Instructions:

This course examines the political, economic, and social evolution of contemporary Italy as represented in the visual culture of Italian cinema, introducing students to critical tools such as vocabulary of film analysis and theory. We will focus on the stylistic and iconographic developments of Italian cinema, with interdisciplinary connections to other modes of representation (the figurative arts and the oral traditions and literatures of both Italy and Europe). While learning to analyze film methodologies and classic genres of Italian cinema, from the commedia all-italiana to historical productions, and reflecting on film as a creative art form with important social and historical references (e.g. Fascism, gender roles, government corruption, globalization, nationalism and regionalism), students will develop essential life skills such as the ability to analyze and interpret data, as well as to communicate and collaborate with others in ways that take into account, and are respectfu
