Italian cinema is mostly known for its Neo-Realism period (embodied in the masterpieces by Vittorio De Sica) and the brilliant films of Federico Fellini. Yet, Italian Cinema is so much more. Since the beginning of the history of film, Italian Cinema has continually introduced innovative directors and talented actors, screenwriters, composers, set designers, and costume designers to the world. The Cine-Club: 79 Years of Italian Film (1930-2009) allows participants to discover cinematic gems and contemplate diverse themes in Italian life. Represented in the film series are classics, such as: I Tartassati (1959); Il medico della mutua (1968); Il giorno della civetta (1968); Indagine su un cittadino al di sopra di ogni sospetto (1970) ; and In nome del popolo italiano (1971). The Italia Today films (1980-present) offer an especially rare look at Italian contemporary cinema and society with films, including: Ricordati di Me (2003); Manuale d’Amore 2 (2007); Il divo (2008); and Bianco e Nero (2008). The screenings include discussions on history of film and present-day Italian cinema, the protagonists, and themes that the films explore: from love and politics to family and immigration—revealing the Italian way of life for more than half a century. All films are in Italian and subtitled.
