Additional Fall 2015 Five College Film Courses


Smith College: FYS 185, Style Matters: The Power of the Aesthetic in Italian Cinema
Instructor: Anna Botta
Enrollment: Limited to First Year Studies
Class Schedule:
M 7:30 PM-9:30 PM, T Th 10:30 AM-11:50 AM
This course fullfills Five College Film Major Reguirements 5 (National and Transnational Cinema) and 6 (Special Topics).

Course Description:

Examining Italian cinema from neorealism to today, this course investigates how major directors have negotiated two apparently independent postwar traditions: the aesthetic of realism (which purports to show Italian society and landscape without embellishments) and that search for beauty and style which has historically characterized Italian civilization and become its trademark in today’s global culture (Made in Italy). We study the Italian pinups of postwar cinema, the Latin lover figure, representations of Fascism, the Bel Paese myth, portraits of the lower classes and the immigrants. Directors include Amelio, Antonioni, Bertolucci, De Santis, De Sica, Germi, Moretti, Ozpetek, Pasolini, Visconti. Conducted in English. Films with English subtitles. This course counts toward the film studies and Italian studies majors. Enrollment limited to 16 first-year students. (4 Credits)
