Michael Roemer – Cortile Cascino (1962)

A long-suppressed and controversial documentary, produced for network television but never broadcast, Cortile Cascino broke new ground in the use of cinema-verite techniques. This film is a sensitive but excoriating look at the Cortile Cascino slum in Palermo, Sicily, where poverty and death are in constant competition with the church, the Mafia, and a rigid social structure.
