"If ever there was a movie made entirely out of nostalgia and joy, by a filmmaker at the heedless height of his powers, that movie is Federico Fellini's Amarcord."-Roger Ebert
Join us for a screening of one of Federico Fellini's most celebrated works, Amarcord, in which he evokes a year in the life of the small Italian coastal town of Rimini in the mid-1930s with free-spirited fantasy, bittersweet comedy, and intimate detail. Though filled with phantasmagorical gems from the director's imagination, the film is also rooted in history, filtered through memory: focusing on one family of perfectly normal eccentrics, Fellini examines their impact on one another's lives and the impact of life on them through a series of intersecting tales.
