Winter Film Series: “Amarcord”
7:30 pm
03-04-17

The title means “I remember” in the dialect of Rimini, Italy, the childhood home of the film’s director, the great Federico Fellini. Unmistakably autobiographical, it is in fact about remembering, taking us through various stages and events in the director’s youth. The film serves up scenes of family life, of adolescent schooldays, of town vamps and youthful sexual fantasies, as well as the rise of Mussolini. This truly wonderful movie ranges from deeply comic to deeply felt.

The suggested donation is $5 per person.
