Karl Schoonover in conversation at Oxford

Karl Schoonover (Warwick) and Elena Lombardi (Italian, Balliol College, Oxford) discuss how urban space and Rome's redevelopment appear in De Sica's classic neorealist film Bicycle Thieves (1948).
This is part of the Cities on Film series at Oxford University, supported by the Oxford Forum and Stanford University Centre in Oxford

4 – 7pm | Thursday 16 February
Stanford House, 65 High Street, Oxford

Films about cities are both part of modern urban experience and a mode of our reflecting on that experience. Over the last century both cinema and cities have been in flux. What have we learned from films that explore cities? About cities? About films? About tradition? About modernity? About fantasy? About reality? About beauty? About ugliness? About living? About ourselves? About making sense or nonsense of any or all of these? In this series of Film events, the Oxford Forum and Stanford University Centre in Oxford are showing entrancing films about cities, followed by dialogues and discussion.
