Catherine O'Rawe: Music, Montage, and Italian Retro Masculinity
Music, Montage, and Italian Retro Masculinity
Ohio State's Program in Film Studies offers students and the campus community the opportunity to think historically and critically about the entire culture of global cinema. The program partners with the Wexner Center's media arts department on cosponsored lectures and selected screenings.
Catherine O’Rawe, senior lecturer at the University of Bristol, examines the construction of contemporary Italian masculinity on screen through a nostalgic return to the violence of the 1970s, focusing specific attention on the retro style of Michele Placido’s 2005 gangster film Romanzo criminale and its 2008 TV sequel. Alan O’Leary, associate professor at the University of Leeds, provides a response after the talk.
Cosponsored with Ohio State’s Department of French and Italian.
