LA DOLCE VITA (1961)
55th Anniversary Screening
Tuesday, February 16, at 7:30 PM

During Oscar season, we celebrate one of the first foreign films to figure prominently in the Academy Awards voting. LA DOLCE VITA earned four nominations in 1961, including Best Director Federico Fellini and Best Original Screenplay, and it won the Oscar for Piero Gherardi’s elegant costumes. Fellini's sardonic epic about the decadence of modern Rome was one of the most influential of foreign films, and its influence can still be seen today in films like the Oscar winner from 2013,
The Great Beauty. Fellini even added a new word to our vocabulary when he introduced the character of the celebrity-chasing photographer, Paparazzo. Cruise along the Via Veneto with Marcello Mastroianni, then take a dip in the Trevi Fountain with the voluptuous Anita Ekberg.

Introduced by LAFCA president Stephen Farber.
