Cinema At The Institute: Through the history of Italian films
Focus 4: Borderlands Cinema
Migrations constitute a crucial challenge in globalised modernity.
Many of our existences have become more and more nomadic and deterritorialised and our identity is strictly related to the geo-political order. But how does cinema contribute to the establishment and the record of these narratives of displacement? With this focus we attempt at offering a vision of the migration phenomena as portrayed in recent Italian fiction films.
This selection takes up Italy as a emigration destination while not overlooking a still unremote past when Italians were the ones abandoning their lands to spread across the world in search of fortune.
