  1. Italian Cinema: Neorealism
    Weekend
    Course start date:  Sun 22 Jan 2023

    Location on this date:  Keeley Street

    Tutors:  John Wischmeyer
    Neorealism was just a brief moment in cinema history, but its impact was enormous, not only on Italian film but also on the French New Wave and ultimately on films all over the world—but not only on films. It was a postwar film movement that helped reconstruct a broken society. The term 'neorealism' was first applied to Visconti’s Ossessione (1943) but the style came to fruition in the mid-to-late forties in such films as Roberto Rossellini’s Rome Open City (1945), Shoeshine (1946), Paisan (1946) and Bicycle Thieves (1948 Vittorio De Sica).
