“Felliniesque” has become a popular synonym associated with the grotesque, the satirical, and the surreal in Federico Fellini’s films. In our Day Course, we are going to explore the elements which made Fellini’s films magical and unique.
Moving from Neorealism to “neo-socialist-realism”
The human condition as spiritual rather than economic poverty
Metaphorical characterisation and the impact of actor Giulietta Masina
The concept of grace and salvation
The influence of “Commedia dell’arte” and morality play
This beginners’ level course includes a full screening of Fellini’s Le Notti di Cabiria.
