  • Description:
    Federico Fellini’s influence in the world of film prompted the creation of the term Felliniesque. A very autobiographical filmmaker, his childhood memories and dreams were the raw material for his films. His characters were distinguished by their eccentricities and his humor was often absurd. He has been a major influence on the works of many distinguished directors among them Bergman, Kubrick Scorsese, Bertolucci and Fassbinder. Join us in November for the screenings of some of his best films.
