Between 1960 and 1972, a group of idealistic filmmakers with radical values set out to alter the image and content of Italian cinema. These contemporaries of the Arte Povera artists focused unflinchingly on Italy's brutal sociopolitical passage from an agricultural to an industrialized society and the changes wrought on economic, sexual, and familial values. An intellectual survey of visionary work before and after the cultural revolution, this series features rarely screened films that revisit this vital period of Italian history. Co-curated by Silvia Lucchesi, Florence, and Walker Film/Video curator Cis Bierinckx.
