OverviewThe course will introduce students to the magic world of the ?director superstar? Federico Fellini, who influenced the art of cinema all over the world.
Here?s a quotation from American director David Lynch, to give an example of how influential Fellini was to international directors: ?If I had to choose films that represent, for me, examples of perfect filmmaking, the first would be 8 ½, for the way Federico Fellini managed to accomplish with film what mostly abstract painters do ? namely, to communicate an emotion without ever saying anything in a direct manner, without ever explaining anything, just by a sort of sheer magic?.
After ?meeting? the Master, students will discover the main trends and filmmakers in contemporary Italian cinema. Since cinema is a mirror to our world, students will learn a lot about contemporary Italian society through the seventh art.
