Francesco Rosi centenary cycle



Francesco Rosi centenary cycle

On November 15th 2022 the director Francesco Rosi (1922-2022) would have turned 100 years old. The Cinémathèque Québécoise, with tthe support of the Italian Cultural Institute in Montreal, celebrates it with a series of films not to be missed.

Although his name is less famous than those of some of his contemporaries such as Fellini or Pasolini, the Neapolitan Francesco Rosi is nonetheless a major figure of Italian cinema of the second half of the 20th century. A figurehead of a rigorous political cinema, he has made power an essential theme of his work, recurrently addressing the weight of the mafia in Italian society. But far from shining only in their analysis, Rosi's films are expressions of his remarkable talent as a director and storyteller, to which his taste for literary adaptations also responds. Celebrating the centenary of his birth offers us a wonderful opportunity to revisit many of the milestones of a filmography that spans more than forty years.
