Screening Ethnicity

Cinematographic Representations of Italian Americans in the United States

October 2002

by Anna Camaiti Hostert, Anthony Julian Tamburri

Screening ethnicity makes a powerful argument for the validity, indeed the necessity, of Italian American cinema as an object of study. By including the concepts of race, gender, and social class along with the more obvious themes of identity and ethnicity, this collection sheds new light on the careers of Frank Capra, Francis Ford Coppola, Michael Cimino, Martin Scorsese, Quentin Tarantino, and the recently canonized David Chase, while calling attention to the achievements of such lesser known figures as Abel Ferrara, Stanley Tucci, Mariarosy Calleri, and Nancy Savoca. "It comes as no suprise that there is so much smart thinking and writing contained in this book" - Bill Tonelli, Rolling Stone.
