Abstract

Screenwriter Cesare Zavattini’s manifesto for neorealism stands as both a descriptive and philosophical statement on the nature of the movement and on cinema’s possibilities in capturing the “real,” echoing in some ways André Bazin’s “Ontologie de l’image photographique” (1945). Zavattini’s manifesto harkens back to Longanesi’s “The Glass Eye” in many ways, but whereas Longanesi celebrated aspects of American cinema, Zavattini deplores it.
