Books on the Big Screen

ITALIAN 3338

Instructor: Prof. Cristina Caracchini  

This course will introduce students to the cinematic works of some of the best-known contemporary Italian directors, and to the bestselling novels that inspired them. Our lessons will be filled by the extraordinary destinies of passionate, original, and thought-provoking Italian characters whose lives have been stricken by events that will turn them upside down forever. Scared children fighting against too familiar kidnappers, well-established judges challenging the very judicial system that they represent, and journalists opposing political censorship will provide us with examples of courage, heroism and engagement.
