In the new year 2014, the weekly Movie Night @ Tirana Ekspres starts with a cycle of films introducing the era of Italian Neo-realism.
Tuesday, 28/01/2014, 19.30: “Roma” (Comedy, 127min, 1972) by Federico Fellini
Neorealism belongs to an era between massacres and progress in a century of wars and totalitarism. It arose from a situation of battered World War II, where the crop has failed. Neorealiste cinema returns or intends to restore art to rescue a human role, exactly right there when this has affected the darkest point of human civilization. Neo-realism for Roberto Rossellini (who is a key director of this movement), is a tool to cope with real life and how to approach things more real.
