Title: Il nomadismo americano sullo schermo. L'individuo inquieto e la terapia dell'erranza
Authors: Renda, Chiara
Issue Date: 2006
Publisher: Padova, Studio Editoriale Gordini
Abstract: Nomadism, a constituent feature of the American experience, has become one of contemporary man's founding myths through different art forms, from literature to painting and to cinema (thanks to such genres as the western and the road movie). The need of continuous movement and the restlessness of Americans, phenomena that are rooted in the recent history of a continent born as modern, are central to the way America is represented in the European imaginary, especially thanks to the cinema screen. Through the vast and changing scenes of the American landscape, travel has thus become a primary subject for cinema (in particular during the last thirty years), chiefly in the work of some contemporary authors, such as Wenders, Lynch, Van Sant and Jarmusch.
