This wide-ranging exploration of the roots, context and legacy of Italian neorealism is the perfect starting point for our two-month long programme. Join season curator Giulia Saccogna and guest speakers for a richly illustrated conversation looking at some of the key figures behind the movement, the newly emerging portrayal of women in Italian cinema in the post-war era, and the stylistic elements and thematic preoccupations that made the movement so influential.

We are delighted to announce that film critic Christina Newland and academics Professor Richard Dyer and Professor Stephen Gundle will join season programmer Giulia Saccogna for this event.

Ticket £6.50.

Joint ticket available with the screening of Four Steps in the Clouds on Tuesday 7 May £16, concessions £13 (Members pay £2 less).
