Born to a middle class family in the small seaside town of Rimni, Federico Fellini became one of the most imaginative and powerful filmmakers in the history of cinema. How was he drawn to cinema? What rules did he break with his idiosyncratic working method? Why did he call himself "a born liar?" The course will move between close readings of his extraordinary films and studies of cultural context in which they were produced. Films will include The White Sheik, I Vitelloni, La Dolce Vita, Nights of Cabiria, Amarcord, Matrimonial Agency, The Temptation of Dr. Antonio, 8/12, Ginger and Fred, various TV commercials; as well as sections from films by Roberto Rosselini, Pier Pasolini, and others.

When Offered Fall.
