Federico Fellini at 100

UC Berkeley Art Museum Pacific Film Archive

Federico Fellini (1920–1993) was a masterful artist of memory, dreams, fantasy, and desire. A central figure in the international art cinema movement that took off in the mid-1950s, he earned some of film's highest honors, winning Academy Awards for Best Foreign Language Film for La strada, Nights of Cabiria, 8 1/2, and Amarcord, and the Palme d'Or at Cannes for La dolce vita.

This is what SF/Arts curator Sura Wood has to say about Federico Fellini at 100 :

BAMPFA pays tribute to the Italian master, a pivotal figure in international art cinema of the 1950s whose early interests were puppetry, the circus and movies. The boffo se-ries includes Fellini’s screenwriting ventures with Roberto Rossellini (“Open City,” “Paisan”) and famous works he directed like 8 ½, starring alter ego Marcello Ma-stroianni, and “La Strada,” where his wife of fifty years, Guiletta Masina, gave a heartrending performance.
