Dreams have informed cinema since its inception. This panel aims to discuss the oneiric in Italian cinema: from filmic representations and visualizations of dreams, nightmares, hallucinations, dream-like and hypnagogic states, to dreams as cinematic allegories and metaphors and the theoretical frameworks applied to the investigation of this relationship. Relevant comparative studies between Italian and American, European and non-Western cinema are encouraged. Please send 250-300 word abstracts to Francesco Pascuzzi, ciski77@eden.rutgers.edu.
