Film Series: Federico Fellini’s 8½

April 29, 2022 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Italian filmmaking giant Federico Fellini’s groundbreaking 1963 film, 8 1/2, is a story of art imitating life imitating art. Fellini’s film is highly autobiographical and follows the moods and meanderings of Fellini’s avatar, an Italian filmmaker named Guido Anselmi, as he faces a creative brick wall. Pressured by the studio and tortured by his marital troubles, Guido moves through his life half in a dream. The lines are blurred between reality and imagination and the plot as a thing the viewer depends on recedes altogether, replaced with Guido’s thoughts, his passions, his grief, and his ambivalence. Memories of his childhood and fantastical manifestations of his uneasy state of mind make this an experience to remember. The film won the Academy Award for Best Foreign Film and was ranked 10th on the British Film Institute’s list of the Greatest Films of All Time.

Please join us on Friday, April 29th at 7:30 pm in Fiona’s Theatre at your favourite museum to enjoy this film with a complimentary glass of wine. All NAGB Film Series screenings are free and open to the public. Space is limited, and proof of vaccination is required. COVID-19 social distancing protocols will be in effect.
