This is a new collection of posthumous writings by Andre Bazin on Italian films and directors - never previously available in the English language. "Andre Bazin and Italian Neorealism" presents, for the first time in English, a new selection of Andre Bazin's writings on Vittorio De Sica, Roberto Rossellini, and Federico Fellini; lesser known but important neorealist works such as "The Roof", "Forbidden Christ", and "Love in the City"; and vital topics like realism versus reality, neorealism's eclipse amid postwar Italy's economic prosperity, and the relationship between neorealism and propaganda. There are also essays on art and politics, film and comedy, and cinema and the avant-garde. The book also features a sizable scholarly apparatus including explanatory notes, an extensive index, a contextual introduction to Bazin's life and work, a comprehensive Bazin bibliography, and credits of the films discussed. This volume thus represents a major contribution to the discipline of cinema studies, as well as a testament to the continuing influence of one of film's pre-eminent critical thinkers.
