Rossellini’s beguiling neorealist comedy proposes a sharp satire on human behaviour. Engaging us in people-watching from the start, he creates a detailed and authentic portrait of life in a small fishing village. When a photographer discovers that his camera has special powers, he also learns that with power comes responsibility. Join us after the screening to reflect upon the film through a neurodivergent lens.

The post screening discussion will be hosted by campaigner and creative Leo Capella.

Relaxed screenings are presented each month for neurodivergent audiences, with their companions and assistants. More detailed information can be found at bfi.org.uk/relaxed.

Tickets £3.
