With a career spanning across fifty years, celebrated Italian director Federico Fellini is considered one of the most influential filmmakers of the 20th century. His brilliant and at times surreal films are known for their ability to shine a light on the extremes of cruelty and innocence. This September, World Movies celebrates some of Fellini’s finest work over two stunning nights.
Monday 15 September 8.30pm: Fellini’s Roma (Italy, 1972)
This poetic comedy-drama depicts director Federico Fellini’s move from his native Rimini to Rome as a youth – paying homage to the city he arrived in as a law student in 1939.
Tuesday 16 September 8.30pm: Fellini’s Satyricon (Italy, 1969)
Federico Fellini’s decadent, fragmented masterpiece with deliberately modernistic undertones ruthlessly portrays the corruption and decadence of the world. Nominated for Best Director at the 1971 Oscars.
