The UM Department of World Languages and Cultures cordially invites you to participate in celebrating 100th birthday of the Italian film director Federico Fellini (1920-1993). Recognized as one of the greatest and most influential filmmakers of all time, in the 50 years of his career, Fellini was nominated for 12 Academy Awards and won four in the category of Best Foreign Language Film, the most any director ever did in the history of the Academy. Come enjoy an academic screening of one of his masterpieces, “Amarcord” (1973), a comedy-drama that irreverently re-visits Fellini’s adolescent years in 1930s fascist Italy.
A short introduction will precede the screening. Please feel free to contribute to the discussion that will follow.
