No charge. Film discussion follows from the perspective of the Commons
What's it like to be three-dimensional?
Fellini challenges us to speak, much less articulate public policy that would elevate some in society to the role of Tyrant, enabling them to detrmine who must pay the tyrant for the mere right to be alive in society!
Aren't we all HERE by mysterious force? Who, simply by bad luck of public policy, should be obliged to pay obeisance to others by working for them involuntarily?
Join us for a night of Frederico Fellini as hedabs pity on us all.
Film at 7:30 sharp. Discussion 9:30-10. Everyone expelled by 10:05.
Movie Info from Rotten Tomatoes:
Federico Fellini's warmly nostalgic memory piece examines daily life in the Italian village of Rimini during the reign of Mussolini, and won the 1974 Academy Award as Best Foreign Film. The film's greatest asset is its ability to be sweet without being cloying, due in great part to Danilo Donati's surrealistic art direction and to the frequently bawdy injections of sex and politics by screenwriters Fellini and Tonino Guerra. Fellini clearly has deep affection for the people of this seaside village, warts and all, and communicates it through episodic visual anecdotes which are seen as if through the mists of a favorite dream, playfully scored by Nino Rota and lovingly photographed by Giuseppe Rotunno. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi
