Transcript SATURDAY, 4 - 5:^0 P.M. the artist the desire to produce; noting the profound differences between simply perceiving the world, and perceiving something meaningful in an experience that brings our perceptual and intuitive abilities together with selective memory. This synthesis of perception, intuition, and memory can allow us to focus our attention on a particular object or image, expand our awareness of it, and more fully comprehend our heightened sense of its essential form. Andre Cote, Barry College; Ellyn Cote, Miami Dade Community College. "Pre-Raphaelite Artists: Visions and Fantasies." The Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood was covert, revolutionary, naughty, bizarre. The members strove for uniqueness through their wild life-style, their medieval or "antique" subjects, and their aesthetic theories. They were superb colorists (as evidenced in approximately 40 slides). Their art and fantasies were fueled by visions of women: innocent, courtly, ideal, alluring, enchanting, enchanted. Pre-Raphaelite art deals invariably with women; whether the setting is a medieval environment, a triumphant heaven, or an enchanted space — the women share an element of trance; whether fallen or beatified — the women project aspects of ecstasy that sway uncomfortably between physical and spiritual consummation. 0 FANTASTIC ELQ4ENTS IN ITALIAN FILM Chair: Emanuel L. Paparella, University of Puerto Rico. Maria Cristina Rodriguez, Interamerican University, San Juan. "Lina Wertmuller: The Use of Fantasy in 'The Seduction of Mimi' and 'Seven Beauties'." Most of Wertmuller's films have been studied in a political context as they deal with ideology and men/worn en relationships. The use of non-reality, the blow-up image and the dream sequence, allow Wertmuller to deal with these themes in an indirect and more artistic way. Bernard Lockwood, University of Puerto Rico. "The Realistic Film may also be Fantastic." Some thirty years ago, Cesare Zavattini issued a stirring neo-realistic manifesto calling for more realism, not less, and even asking for abolishment of story and dialogue. Zavattini claimed that by mining all the elements that inhere in a given "real" situation, it would be possible to create a film that in its banal "dailiness" would become "worthy of attention . . . even become 'spectacular'." In this brief paper I should like to remind the audience that the realistic film, of whatever variety, may be just as spectacular, just as astonishing, as the fantastic film. Donna Mancusi-Ungaro, Rutgers State University. "Trip the Light Fantastic: Fellini's Shaporaz." Fellini's City of Women is the most baroque and strangely optimistic statement in the evolution of his recurring theme of the discontented male self. Snaporaz is in search of his identity in terms of 34 his desire for the traditional ideal woman and his fear of the new ideal woman. Yet who is Shaporaz? The ideal man? Is he not the same vitellone cartoon figure obsessed with the elusiveness of this ideal that we saw in Alberto; or Marcello who creates the artificial reality of the sweet life; or conceited yet pathetic Guido who in fact called himself by the very same nickname — Snaporaz? Patrick Brancaccio, Colby College. "Pasolini's Hawks and Sparrows and the End of Ideology." An exploration of Pasolini's use of the form of a picaresque allegorical fantasy to depict the political and spiritual malaise of the late fifties and early sixties in Italy.
