The Nights of Cabiria (1957). In 35 mm, 110 min.
Like artist Alexander Calder, master Italian director Federico Fellini saw the circus as a metaphor for life. Fellini's circus parade-like films project a carnivalesque sense of theatricality and role-playing. And his best work spotlights his Chaplinesque wife, actress Giulietta Masina, who "experiences the tragedy and comedy of life with the tender amazement of a clown." This series presents four Fellini/Masina 35 mm masterpieces, in Italian with English subtitles.
Other films in this series include:January 8: La Strada March 5: Juliet of the Spirits March 19: Ginger and Fred
