1973, Italy, Federico Fellini, 123 min.
With Magali Noel, Bruno Zanin, and Pupella Maggio
Introduced by photographer Ken Schles.
In his carnivalesque portrait of provincial Italy during the Fascist period, Federico Fellini satirizes his youth and turns daily life into a circus of social rituals, adolescent desires, male fantasies, and political repartee, all set to Nino Rota’s classic, nostalgia-tinged score.
“From moment to moment and shot by shot, Amarcord delivers more sheer pleasure than any other Federico Fellini movie.” —Richard T. Jameson
