The Cinema of Francesco Rosi



The Cinema of Francesco Rosi

in Italian with English translation

Jean Gili will give a lecture

Francesco Rosi was one of Italy's most acclaimed and influential film-makers from the 1950s to the '90s.  Committed to portraying social issues, he continued the post-war neo-realist style, often examining corruption and criminality in his movies. His film The Mattei Affair won the Palme d'Or at the 1972 Cannes Film Festival. "Hands Over the City" won the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival in 1963.  In 2012, he received an honorary Golden Lion for lifetime achievement for leaving "an indelible mark on the history of Italian film-making".

Specializing in Italian cinema, the French film critic Jean Gili has written about film for many magazines  since the 1960s.  He writes regularly for the magazine "Positif."  He was a Professor at the University of Nice for many years and created the Festival of Italian Cinema in Annecy. Currently he is Professor Emeritus at the University of Paris Panthéon-Sorbonne.  Click here to RSVP
