The Romance Languages Department Presents:
Contemporary Italian Cityscapes: Screening the Marginal
In connection with the ongoing photograph exposition Peripheral Visions: Italian Photography in Context, 1950s-Present held at the Bertha and Karl Leubsdorf Art Gallery at Hunter College, the Romance Languages Department at Hunter College is pleased to present the film show Contemporary Italian Cityscapes: Screening the Marginal, a series of four films articulating Italian contemporary urban landscapes in their connection to “the other” and “the marginal”.
Italian major cities, transformed after the 1960s by industry and the global economy, have been the destination of international immigrants, whose daily life and cultural activities have been visibly transforming the urban fabric. Each of these films articulates a different rendering of the cultural and historical experience of the contemporary Italian cityscape.
Screenings will be held at The Leona & Marcy Chanin Language Center, room B126 (subway level) Hunter West at 6 p.m.
