Leverhulme Lecture: Between Academia and Practice

Description
Professor Zagarrio is one of Italy’s leading and most prolific film scholars, the author of a dozen monographs and the editor of over thirty edited collections, including books on Frank Capra and Francis Ford Coppola. Throughout his life, Professor Zagarrio has sought to reconcile his desire to produce scripts, feature films and documentaries with his academic career. This dual approach has led to the conviction that first-hand experience of film practice is crucial if the scholar is to be able to effectively analyse a filmmaker's work and, over time, this apparently 'schizophrenic' approach has developed into a special skill.
