Amarcord (1974) by Federico Fellini



Amarcord (1974) by Federico Fellini

In honor of the 100th birthday of Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini (1920–1993), The Museum of Fine Arts in Houston Films presents one of his most beloved films as a precursor to an upcoming fall retrospective honoring the maestro’s centennial.

The movie will be introduced by author Alessandro Carrera, professor and director of Italian studies at the University of Houston and a book signing will follow the screening, celebrating prof. Carrera's award-winning 2018 book, Fellini’s Eternal Rome: Paganism and Christianity in the Films of Federico Fellini (Flaiano Award 2019).

A carnivalesque portrait of provincial Italy during the Fascist period, Federico Fellini’s most personal film satirizes his youth and turns daily life into a circus of social rituals, adolescent desires, male fantasies, and political subterfuge, all set to Nino Rota’s gorgeous, nostalgia-tinged score.

Janus Films is proud to present this enduring classic in a new restoration, personally supervised by director of photography Giuseppe Rotunno.
