Nick Deocampo, one of most prolific film critics we have, has announced “Fascism and Cinema”, a 3-hour talk on anti-fascist films, including Bernardo Bertolucci’s The Conformist.
“With the alarming rise of fascist regimes in the world,” the Facebook post reads. “Nick Deocampo gathers together a number of films in order to interrogate the role that cinema can play in periods of autocratic rule.” The talk will center around Bertolucci’s film, which follows characters pinioned by their country’s political tyranny.
Check out the poster for the lecture:
