Synopsis

Le psychodrame films Jacob Levi Moreno - who invented the technique of psychodrama - as he works with a group of French TV actors. The mise-en-scène of three “psychodramas” which the professor staged with his assistant Anne Ancelin Schützenberger, as Rossellini reflects on a particularly congenial, potential acting technique, and, in general, on the potential of educational TV. But the topic launched by Moreno to spark the actors’ involvement in the psychodrama couldn’t help but interest him and, today in particular, it is very up-to-date.

Roberto Rossellini

Roberto Rossellini (Rome, Italy, 1906-1977) began working in cinema during Fascism. During the post-war period, he created neo-realistic masterpieces like Rome Open City (1945), Paisà (1946) and Germany Year Zero (1947). He then made films which studied solitude, alienation and marital crisis – Stromboli (1950), The Greatest Love (1952) and Journey to Italy (1954). His films are backed up by an experimental style and study reality with a subjective outlook. In 1960s he began working in television, dedicating himself to historical and didactic cinema.
