"1950s Aesthetics: Film in Transition; Minelli Centenary"
The 1950's was a significant decade in the history of the cinema; it marked the
end of classical Hollywood and the beginning of a cinema that addressed the
contemporary culture and post-war social changes. The decade saw important changes
occurring in the European cinema and a worldwide crossover of influences. Within
this context, we are celebrating the cinema of Vincente MInnelli who, working within
the tradtions of classical Hollywood, brought a modernist aesthetic and cosmopolitan
sensibility to his films.
Submission deadline: November 15, 2003.
