Italian film showing this evening – Bicycle Thieves – Ladri di biciclette

Italian flagWe are pleased to invite you to the next film of our Italy through its films series, featuring Bicycle Thieves – Ladri di biciclette.

We will be meeting in Lecture Theatre B at Avenue Campus at 6:15pm on Monday 29th October. All welcome! A brief description of the film by Adam Bingham states: “The film traces a voyage through Italy whose implicit postscript is that tomorrow and the next day ad infinitum the same camera could film the same streets and record similar stories featuring all-too similar people in identical situations; and in this at least, Ladri di biciclette is paradigmatic neorealism.” (Directory of World Cinema: Italy, edited by Louis Bayman, Intellect Books Ltd, 2012.
