This guy is a friend of ours...


my name is Torbjørn Pedersen and I'm a master student studying the presentation and preservation of cinema at the University of Amsterdam. I have put together a short presentation on Italian formula cinema for a class on curating cinema, as well as a proposition of how to present these films to modern audiences. My idea is based around the concept of the terza visione and how these films' original viewing conditions have disappeared. I have put together a small program for a screening event based around the giallo and would like to eventually have similar programs for all the major filoni.

I was wondering if you could take some time to read through this proposition and leave a comment on the blog. Any film suggestion, critique or input in general is much appreciated. If you know anyone else that might be interested in the subject feel free to contact me or send the link to them.

Kind regards,
Torbjørn Pedersen
