ABOUT “FORBIDDEN GAMES”
CHILDHOOD IN POSTWAR ITALY


 

By focusing on children in Italian films, this lecture will emphasize the horrible toll war makes on childhood, the innocents, and families.




In this lecture Prof. David FORGACS investigates how far children in Post-War Italian cinema correspond to adult’s projections onto them and how far childhood resists such appropriation and constitutes a site of moral, sexual, and spiritual ambiguity. Films discussed - in addition to Forbidden Games - will be Vittorio DeSica’s Sciusca’ (Shoeshine) and “Ladri di Biciclette” (Bicycles Thieves); Roberto Rosselini’s “Germania Anno Zero” (Germany Year Zero);  Ludovico Visconti’s “Bellissima”;  Gianni Amelio’s “Il Ladro di Bambini” (Children’s Kidnapper);  Gabriele Salvatores’ “Io non ho paura” (I have no fear);  and Paolo Virzi’s “Caterina va in citta'” (Caterina in the Big City).
