Iranian Film Museum to review Italian neorealist cinema
Art and Experience: The Film Museum of Iran in Tehran has planned to review Italian neorealist cinema during a five-day program starting on Thursday.
Italian neorealism, also known as the Golden Age, is a national film movement characterized by stories set among the poor and the working class, filmed on location, and frequently using non-professional actors.
The program will showcase ‘Rome, Open City’, a 1945 war thriller by Roberto Rossellini as well as ‘Shoeshine’ (1946), ‘Bicycle Thieves’ (1948), ‘Miracle in Milan’ (1951), and ‘Umberto D.’ (1952), all by Vittorio De Sica.
An exhibition of posters and stills from the Italian neorealist films is also scheduled to be held at the museum on the sidelines of the event.
