Okay, this is in the wrong board, but I hope that everyone has understand what it means!
When the Festival in Venice is (1 - 11. Septemper) Qt will come and “host” some fine restort movies. Read this from the official homepage:
In cinema too there are two histories: the official one, which is the one normally taught to us in school, and a secret one, one wrongly considered to be “inferior”: the history in which the real causes of events are found.
The boom of the New Italian Cinema (from the 1930s onwards) occurred because, in parallel with its rise, there was the growth also of a “lower cinema”, in which authors and workers attempted to invent the first true Italian “genre cinema”; a spectacular cinema which whirled through the market without losing any of its innovative charge in terms of style and subject.
It is only right, therefore, that the Cinema Section of the Biennale should open the work of rediscovery and restoration of the forgotten Italian cinema, one that is invisible, unknown or unacknowledged. Ideally, the retrospective of the 2004 Festival should constitute only the start of a process of study and recovery, with a timetable of Permanent activities over a period of four years exploring and diversifying the discoveries.
The retrospective of the 61st Festival: The secret history of Italian cinema. Kings of the 'Bs (1960-1980) will include 30 to 35 films by directors such as Mario Bava, Vittorio Cottafavi, Fernando Di Leo, Lucio Fulci, Antonio Margheriti, and others.
