Despite the anti-political and conservative trends that have infiltrated Italian society in recent years, Italian cinema has renewed its longstanding engagement with issues pertaining to work, criminality, immigration, racism, gender, violence, eco sustainability and national identity. This course examines films and documentaries that best represent these matters. Each film will be analyzed for its artistic merits and will be accompanied by one critical essay provided by the instructor.
