Per non dimenticare. Qualità e sostenibilità degli Holocaust film italiani
Ebook in formato Pdf leggibile su questi device:
This paper analyses a corpus of Italian films produced in the last 15 years that, in various ways, have dealt with the Holocaust theme. All of these films were recognised as ‘film d’interesse culturale e nazionale’ (films of cultural and national interest). Starting from this observation, the article will trace the connections between didactical purposes, quality claims and the concept of ‘impegno’ (political and cultural commitment), which all come to light from these films. After a brief overview, based mainly on quantitative data, the paper focuses on a specific case study, which is also the most recent Italian Holocaust film to be circulated in movie theatres: Anita B. (2014, R. Faenza). Through an in depth analysis of the critical reception and the distribution patterns, the article illustrates how, on the one hand, the production of the film seems to adhere to several precise cultural and memorial paradigms; and on the other, how the marketing strategy distances the film from every previous case.
