The bambino negato or missing child of contemporary Italian cinema
Reconsiders and develop's Deleuze's position on the passivity of the child in Cinema 2, by exploring the Italian film Io non ho paura/I'm Not Scared (2003) directed by Gabriele Salvatores. The crique is enabled by Sutton's exploration of the film's consideration of historical events from the 1970s (pp. 357-8).
This work influenced David Martin-Jones' consideration of the child seer in the Argentine melodrama Kamchatka (2002), in Deleuze and World Cinemas.
