European Ambassadors of Film Heritage - Part 1

Available language: en it


Age: 14-18
Sessions: 15
Session's duration: 5h


A class of 27 high-school students, in the frame of the "Alternanza scuola/lavoro" program ("Work-related Learning"), visited the Cineteca venues 15 times. First of all they attended 3 lessons about cinema language (framing, editing, creating a score). Then they could watch three films in the theater - the restored versions of The Great Dictator, For a Fistful of Dollars, Accattone. Every screening was preceded by a presentation and followed by a discussion with experts in order to contextualise the history of the films and to highlight the major issues in terms of style and content. After these screenings, the group split up in 3 sub-groups, each one starting to work around one of the films they watched. Every group then started to visit the Cineteca Library to collect materials and information on the film they chose to work on, by interviewing the experts and examining reviews and books; they could also attend a guided tour of the exhibition Officina Pasolini at Museum of Modern Art in Bologna and of the Restoration Lab L'Immagine Ritrovata in order to understand better the process of bringing films back to life by looking at practical examples, comparing not-restored and restored prints. After collecting all the materials they needed and analyzing them, they were introduced to the use of the equipment (cameras, lights, microphones...) in order to realize a clip where every sub-group had to present the film they chose.


The Framework sets out a series of outcomes to which any film literacy programme or project, be it in the formal education or informal education sector, could realistically aspire. It is not expected that any one project could deliver all of the outcomes in the Framework, but rather it is hoped that by placing the critical, creative and cultural dimensions alongside each other that it will be possible for project developers to explore issues and outcomes beyond their own current practice.
