Still image from the film Paisan
Italian auteur Roberto Rossellini’s Paisan (1946) is a masterpiece of the Neorealist cinema. The film covers six separate episodes capturing a struggling Italy at the end of World War II. This resulted in an Oscar® nomination for Best Original Screenplay for the collaboration of Rossellini, Federico Fellini, and Sergio Amidei. Paisan shows how the war has transformed the Italian landscape by delineating problems of language, racism, fascism, gender, and religion to construct a traumatic nationalist identity.
