The main objective of this course is to improve students understanding of the film language. At the end of the course students will be expected to have acquired a capacity to analyse the form and content of particular film texts and to demonstrate an understanding of traditions of filmmaking in different national and international contexts. Specifically, the course aims to provide the students with the main historiographic, theoretical and methodological tools related to the analysis of film, and further to present the application of specific models for the description and interpretation of the film.
Italian cinema of the sixties.
The course focuses on the coexistence, in the Italian cinema of the sixties, of auteur cinema (Antonioni, Fellini, Olmi, Pasolini) with low forms of popular culture such as Italian comedy, Italian western, horror. Popular and cultured cinema divide critics and audiences, helping to make Italian cinema a territory as fascinating as it is complex. During the course will be analyzed some masterpieces such as Il Gattopardo, L'avventura, La dolce vita and Accattone.
