Summer 2006, the Flickerings sidebar to the Cornerstone music festival showcased a number of Rossellini films. Organizer Mike Hertenstein has posted his notes on the series, which included GERMANY YEAR ZERO, THE FLOWERS OF ST FRANCIS, EUROPA 51, THE MIRACLE, STROMBOLI and VOYAGE TO ITALY.
Fall 2006, Cinematheque Ontario presents an exceedingly rare retrospective of Rossellini's work "The Cinema Of Intelligence: A Centenary Retrospective of the Films of Roberto Rossellini." Thorough program notes are online here. (Gee, I think that's the first time I've ever wished I lived in Toronto...). The retrospective is also slated for NYC and LA - wonder if it will make it to Pacific Cinematheque?
