The camera lens as a political tool

The Italian political film is on Cinemateket's program this weekend. The social engagement of neorealism goes a few steps further in Elio Petri's uncovering of the alienating game of power, with clear lines of connection to the Kafkas Process.

The 15. and 16. April is the Italian political film on the Cinematekets program in Oslo with both seminar and film screenings. One of the central directors is Elio Petri and his film Survey of a citizen raised above any suspicion: With links both to the social engagement of neorealism and to Kafkas process Petri shows how power alienates the individual, and how film can be a direct political tool to uncover this phenomenon.
