A Clown from Rimini Named Fellini: A lecture series by Dr. Franco Gallippi
The aim of this lecture series is to commemorate Fellini’s hundredth birthday (January 20, 2020) by taking a journey through the decades of the Maestro’s filmography. Each lecture will be dedicated to two decades of Fellini’s career by concentrating on certain dominant themes that characterize the films of the decade in question. Whatever the decade, the clown and the circus are a constant presence in Fellini’s films. This presence is worth exploring.
Lecture 1: “Fellini’s Beginnings and his Masterpieces” - Thursday, January 16 | 10am - 12 pm
Lecture 2: “Fellini and TV Culture: The 1980s and Early 1990s” - Thursday, January 23 | 10am - 12 pm
Each lecture ends with a clip from one of Fellini’s films followed by a Q&A.
