FILM CLUB N16
September with FEDERICO FELLINI
ROMA Monday 10th, 7:30pm
SATYRICON Monday 24th, 7:30pm
Our film-curator will be Charles Webber
In keeping with the spirit of the Trattoria we’ll be re-starting the film nights with a Fellini double bill, a multi-Academy Award winning director adept at exploring the poetry and beauty of both the everyday and the fantastical. We will be screening two of his less frequently aired films, Roma and Satyricon…
Roma (1972) is Fellini’s semi-autobiographical portrait of life in Rome through the 20th Century. It’s a vibrant travelogue through time and place, a loving but irreverent portrait of his “…fascinating, unknowable…” city. You’ll feel like you’ve been there after watching this and if you’ve never seen a Papal fashion show on roller-skates!
….as a companion piece for September’s second screening we are showing….
Satyricon (1969) a film exploring a highly fictionalised account of life in ancient Rome, based on on the writings of Petronius from 75AD. The film is a phantasmagorical odyssey, it has it all, beautiful men in short skirts, cinema’s first gay wedding, a thirsty hermaphrodite and a score of electronic music, what is there not to love?! It’s a film full of surreal and breathtaking imagery that Fellini called his “…science fiction of the past…”
