All through the month of May, The Loft celebrates the maestro of Italian cinema, Federico Fellini, with special screenings of seven of his greatest, most iconic and most “Fellini-esque” films. One of the most fabulously creative, often imitated and idiosyncratic artists of the 20th century, Fellini remains in a category all his own, godfather to a carnival-esque gallery of prostitutes, strongmen, film directors,
“I have invented myself entirely … a childhood, a personality, longings, dreams and memories, all in order to enable me to tell them.”
– Federico Fellini
vaudevillians and clowns, who share a sympathetic bond with each other against the often cruel and unfeeling “civilized” world outside of theirs (and Fellini’s). Visually dazzling and thematically provocative, his greatest works, including 8 1/2, La Dolce Vita, Amarcord and La Strada (among many others) seem to spring from an almost unbridled imagination, but one which is connected to a profound understanding of the human experience. Don’t miss this golden opportunity to experience Fellini’s magical classics on the big screen!
