• Dir: Federico Fellini

  • Italy, 1973, 126 minmins, DCP

  • Cast: Pupella Maggio, Armando Brancia, Magali Noël, Ciccio Ingrassia

Lust, sin, and the loss of innocence, all passionately reflected in Fellini’s most personal film. Fueled entirely by nostalgia, this carnivalesque portrait of Rimini during Mussolini’s dictatorship showcases the director’s signature themes of social rituals, sexual fantasies, and political subtexts. From the spring tradition of the burning of the witch, to frenzied fascist worshipping, indelible images fill the colorful dream world of the maestro’s childhood with satire and stylistic playfulness. Going beyond its Oscar accolades, this masterpiece leaves an enduring legacy that transformed cinema forever.
