Stromboli (Roberto Rossellini, 1950, 206 mins), NOON, 257 HRCB; a desperate World War II refugee from northern Europe marries an Italian fisherman to escape a prisoner of war camp. Alienation and frustration ensue as the educated and high-class heroine, played by Ingrid Bergman, suffers an existential crisis. Set against the alien and rugged terrain of the volcanic island Stromboli, the film captures the daily life of local fishermen and an actual volcanic eruption; see flyer
Miracle in Milan (Vittorio de Sica, 1951, 96 mins), NOON, 257 HRCB; this is a fairy-tale story of a magical young man and his spiritual connections that help him and his community out of poverty and into heaven. The Franciscan-like tale ends with a magical scene of the vagabonds of Milan flying to heaven over the Gothic cathedral, due to their innocence, optimism and gratitude for the simple life; see flyer
Umberto D. (Vittorio de Sica, 1952, 89 mins), NOON, 3183 JFSB (Education in Zion auditorium); an old, retired public servant is living a simple life in Rome with his dog Flick and a simple housemaid. Times turn tough and Umberto D. is about to be evicted. This heartbreaking tale was seen as impractically sentimental and failed to help the social reality of post war hardships. This film ended the neorealist period of Italian film; see flyer
