Global neorealism : the transnational history of a film style( )

13 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 1,083 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Intellectual, cultural, and film historians have long considered neorealism the founding block of post-World War II Italian cinema. Neorealism, the traditional story goes, was an Italian film style born in the second postwar period and aimed at recovering the reality of Italy after the sugarcoated moving images of Fascism. Lasting from 1945 to the early 1950's, neorealism produced world-renowned masterpieces such as Roberto Rossellini-s "Roma, citta aperta" ("Rome, Open City", 1945) and Vittorio De Sica's "Ladri di biciclette" ("Bicycle Thieves", 1947). These films won some of the most prestigious film awards of the immediate postwar period and influenced world cinema. This collection brings together distinguished film scholars and cultural historians to complicate this nation-based approach to the history of neorealism. The traditional story notwithstanding, the meaning and the origins of the term are problematic. What does neorealism really mean, and how Italian is it? Italian filmmakers were wary of using the term and Rossellini preferred "realism". Many filmmakers confessed to having greatly borrowed from other cinemas, including French, Soviet, and American."

Relating the medium dynamically to other arts, society, economics, politics and culture, this volume shows how the history of film was shaped by wars, depression, regimes, and events

Films and their screen personas but also to their working environment.

The book also describes the involvement of the three stars with political causes and their response to attacks mounted by powerful right-wing elements
