SEPTEMBER 2014
Friday the 19th, 7pm to 9pm.
Italian Cinema - Screening Italy's Margins : An illustrated talk by Dr. William Hope

Many of Italy's socially marginalised groups, ranging from the homeless to the country's prison population and the disabled, are no longer exclusively the focus of documentaries and art cinema, but are now taking centre stage in many large budget, mainstream films such as Ferzan Ozpetek's "Cuore Sacro" and Gianni Amelio's "Le Chiavi di Casa". This talk evaluates the extent to which such films authentically represent such groups and give them a voice, and whether such cinematic work can be categorised as progressive.
Venue: Radmoor Restaurant, Radmoor Centre, Loughborough College, Loughborough 
Cost: free for members, £3 for non members. Tea and coffee & biscuits included.
