Feb 18, 2022 263

Today, The Center For Italian Modern Art announces a series of ten rare Italian films — some of which have been rarely seen in the US — tied to the institution’s current exhibition, “Staging Injustice: Italian Art 1880-1917.”  All film screenings will be held in person at CIMA, 421 Broome Street, 4th floor, New York, NY 10013 (see CIMA’s Health & Safety Guidelines here).

All ten films in the series examine different aspects of the so-called "social question," the series of unsolved socio-economic problems among the lower classes which initially developed in Italy towards the end of the 1800s, and reverberated in Italian cinema throughout the 20th century. Topics include, but are not limited to: immigration, agrarian labor, anarchist and socialist class struggle, and the treatment of women.
