Information

Aims, contents and method of the course

Italian documentary film has long been overshadowed by the internationally successful feature film production, but towards the end of the 1990s a new generation of Italian documentary filmmakers attracted attention, which has since triggered a real documentary boom in Italy. The creative contemporary documentary film scene today produces new hybrid documentary forms and is now regarded as the more innovative form of film in respect to feature films.
In this seminar, we will read and discuss texts on the theory and history of documentary film, examine and analyse film examples from the history of Italian documentary film to today's "cinema del reale" and experimental documentary film.
Participants will be given an overview of Italian documentary film history with a focus on the new documentary film ("cinema del reale"), an understanding of theoretical questions about documentary film and an introduction to film analysis.
