Michael C. Carlos Museum (Emory University)
In conjunction with the exhibition Fellini and Fantasy, the Carlos Museum is pleased to cosponsor Emory Cinematheque's Fall 2022 series of films by the great Italian director Federico Fellini.
This week's screening is La Strada/The Road (1954). The innocent, mentally challenged Gelsomina is sold to the brutal strongman Zampano as an assistant, and together they tour mostly rural Italy performing. In their travels, they meet a clownish tightrope walker who changes their lives. Drawing on and transcending Neorealist techniques, Fellini's fable-like masterwork established his international stature as a major director, featuring his recurring thematic obsessions with the sea, illusion, pageantry, and unexpected forms of grace, all accompanied by Nina Rota's haunting score. La Strada was the winner of the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences' first ever annual Best Foreign Film award.
