“Looking into cinematic otherness: Italian filmmakers in China and the case of Carlo Lizzani’s La muraglia cinese / Behind theGreat Wall (1957)”.
Mr Stefano Bona PhD Student | School of Humanities and Creative Arts | Flinders University
In 2014, Italy and the People’s Republic of China (PRC) signed an important film co-production agreement. What happened before that? And, more generally, how did western directors experience the film production of films in an independent China after its foundation in 1949? Italian filmmakers were among the first to have such an opportunity, with Carlo Lizzani being the first western director allowed to shoot a feature documentary in the PRC in as early as 1956. This presentation will give an in-depth account of his work, based on data collected through archival research in Italy in 2014.
