        Dear All:
        I could use some more suggestions for my syllabus -- and
thanks to those who e-mailed me with titles covering the 30s-40s-50s.
I decided on the segment in *Ba wang bie ji/Farewell My Concubine*
(1993), Chen Kaige, China that covers the three decades.
        I am looking for a 1950s film (possibly non European) that
was influenced by Italian Neorealism.  The other one I am showing
under this rubric is Pather Panchali (1955), Satyajit Ray, India.
        I am aware of the debate concerning the imposing of Western
cultural values, such as a neorealist aesthetic,  on Third Cinema and
the inevitable distortions of a Eurocentric reading of Third Cinema
        Thank you,

        Gloria Monti

I once had a sparrow alight on my shoulder for a moment while I was
hoeing in a village garden, and I felt that I was more distinguished
by that
circumstance than I should have been by any epaulet I could have worn.
