Fellini's AMARCORD on 35mm

Monday, October 15 at 7 pm
Members $15 | Public $20 | Includes Reception

Celebrating 45 years of cinematic excellence, the Cinema Arts Centre kicks off the Vic Skolnick Life of Our Cinema Campaign with a film nearly as old as we are, Fellini’s Amarcord. Fittingly, the title roughly translates to “I remember,” a neologism for nostalgia. In the archival card pictured, you can see how long ago we originally screened it- 1977!

In an Italian seaside town, young Titta (Bruno Zanin) gets into trouble with his friends and watches various local eccentrics as they engage in often absurd behavior. Frequently clashing with his stern father (Armando Brancia) and defended by his doting mother (Pupella Maggio), Titta witnesses the actions of a wide range of characters, from his extended family to Fascist loyalists to sensual women, with certain moments shifting into fantastical scenarios. (Italy/France, 1974, 127 min., R, Italian with English subtitles | Dir. Federico Fellini)
