Abstract

This volume examines representations of social, historical and political issues in contemporary Italian cinema, focusing on the following themes: Italy’s socio-political past as depicted on screen; filmic representations of the Italian State, institutional power and counter-reaction; cinematic depictions of social and geographical marginalization in 21st century Italy. Un Nuovo Cinema Politico Italiano? Volume II adopts a unique, cross-disciplinary approach, featuring essays not only by film scholars but also by political activists and film directors. Its aim is to reconnect Italian film scholarship with issues such as the depoliticization of cultural memory, social marginalization, and grassroots political activism in contemporary Italy. Each section is preceded by an introduction examining key films, and the fourteen individual essays in the volume analyse acclaimed work including Gomorra by Matteo Garrone, Respiro by Emanuele Crialese, Mio fratello è figlio unico by Daniele Luchetti, and Vincere by Marco Bellocchio.
