Roberto Rossellini: Journey to Italy
As with all forms of art, our understanding, appreciation and enjoyment of the great movies can be deepened and enhanced by learning how to see (and read) them better. The St. John’s College Film Institute is dedicated to cultivating the skills necessary to become better readers of great movies, and provides these public screenings—each in the best screening format available—to celebrate the work of eight of cinema’s essential artists.
"One of the most quietly revolutionary works in the history of cinema … [Rossellini] turns romantic melodrama into an intellectual adventure." –Richard Brody, The New Yorker
Roberto Rossellini’s hugely influential film (it inspired Antonioni and remains one of Martin Scorsese’s favorites) charts the declining marriage of a British couple (Ingrid Bergman and George Sanders) on a trip in the countryside near Naples. More than just an anatomy of a relationship, Rossellini’s masterpiece is a heartrending work of emotional transcendence and profound spirituality. (Italy, 1954, 97m, DCP, Janus Films, in Italian with English subtitles)
