Friday Night Film Series: AMARCORD
(dir. Federico Fellini, 1973, 123 min)
A carnivalesque portrait of provincial Italy during the fascist period, Amarcord is the most personal film by Federico Fellini. Through the life of a teenager Titta growing up in a small coastal town in the 1930s, Fellini satirizes his own youth and turns daily life into a circus of social rituals, adolescent desires, male fantasies, and political subterfuge. With Nino Rota’s classic, nostalgia-tinged score, the Academy Award-winning Amarcord remains one of cinema’s enduring treasures.
