Fellini Retrospective: 8 e ½

Celebration for the 100th anniversary of Federico Fellini’s birth

The fourth movie presented within the Fellini Retrospective organized by the Italian Cultural Institute in collaboration with Randwick Ritz Cinema on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the birth of the great master of Italian cinema is 8 e ½ (1963).

The retrospective, organised by the Ritz Cinema, immediately found the enthusiastic participation of the IIC who has engaged the expertise of Christian Pazzaglia to open the series and introduce six of the eight titles listed in the program. The public will be invited to interact with Pazzaglia at the end of the screening through Q&A sessions.

otto e mezzo8 e ½ (1963)

Cast: Marcello Mastroianni, Claudia Cardinale, Anouk Aimée, Sandra Milo

Plot: Troubled Italian filmmaker Guido Anselmi (Marcello Mastroianni) struggles with creative stasis as he attempts to get a new movie off the ground. Overwhelmed by his work and personal life, the director retreats into his thoughts, which often focus on his loves, both past and present, and frequently wander into fantastical territory. As he tries to sort out his many entanglements, romantic and otherwise, Anselmi finds his production becoming more and more autobiographical.

8 e ½ won two Oscars in 1964, one as Best Foreign Language Film and the other as Best Costume Design.
