#24: Domenica d’agosto (Luciano Emmer, 1950)

Wrapping up summer 2021 with Luciano Emmer’s Domenica d’agosto (Sunday in August). This “pink neorealist” film is a lighter summer escape, while still exploring themes of class distinctions, regionalism, and more. We also dive into formal elements, such as language (specifically grammar), editing, and sound.


This episode features the following music excerpts:

  • “Come Prima” by Tony Dallara
  • “Mare verde” by Mirva
  • “Partir con te” by Jula De Palma
