There is a deep and ambivalent connection uniting film with the collective memory. The connection tends to be little explored – certainly less than the link between television and memory – and yet it is decisive and rich in implications. This paper analyzes the nature of the relationship created in the course of the twentieth century between the cinema and the social processes of memory, one that goes quite beyond the placing of the past in discourse to affect the logics and the strategies of mnemonic narrative and the deep-seated mechanisms that govern the collective processes of remembering. Seen against this background, the home movie appears as an extraordinary example of meta-memorial construction, a valuable record for the reconstruction of the history of genealogy, but also a privileged point of observation for understanding the deep mechanisms at work in the coding of the past and the legacy of different kinds of knowledge on which the identity of a community is built.
