The Geography and History of Global Neorealism
This introductory chapter begins by considering the debate over the definition and style of neorealism and efforts to determine the historical intellectual origins of Italian neorealism. It then provides an overview of the main themes covered in the subsequent chapters, including how cinema became truly global in the aftermath of World War II; the beginnings of the global context of neorealism in the 1930s; and the connection between Italian cinema, neorealism, and the mythology of the so-called italiani brava gente (Italian nice folk).
