A Film and its Era: Rome, Open City (Robert Rossellini)
Isabella Rossellini, Vitorrio Taviani, Carlo Lizzani, Père Virgilio Fantuzzi, Luca Magnani, Renzo Rossellini, Adriano Apra
This 52-minute documentary tells the story of the conception, the filming, the Italian première, and the world-wide release of the film that has become a manifesto of Italian Neo-Realism, and which revolutionized cinematographic narration by inventing modern cinema, at an historical moment when, all around, new worlds were being born.
