While the first five decades of the postwar Italian cinematic production furnished relatively little on the subject of the Shoah, recent years have witnessed a surge of Holocaust related films. This study explores the factors behind this development, and provides analyses of works devoted to Fascist anti-Semitism, and the Final Solution for Italy’s Jewish population.

Largely forgotten during the last 20 years of his life, the Soviet filmmaker Dziga Vertov (1896-1954) has occupied a singular and often controversial position over the past sixty years as a founding figure of documentary, avant-garde, and political-propaganda film practice. Creator of “Man with a Movie Camera” (1929), perhaps the most celebrated non-fiction film ever made, Vertov is equally renowned as the most militant opponent of the canons of mainstream filmmaking in the history of cinema.
