About FESTIVAL OPENING - La Dolce Vita
LA DOLCE VITA - Drive-in Screening
Rated M Opening night promises to be a glamorous affair. Film lovers, fashionistas and anyone looking for a fun night out won’t want to miss this wonderful restoration of Federico Fellini’s masterpiece—an era-defining fresco of life among the glitterati in early 1960s Rome. Casting a typically critical eye over the world of celebrity, Fellini’s epic La Dolce Vita stands as a towering achievement of 1960s cinema. The episodic narrative follows jaded journalist Marcello Rubini (Mastroianni) as he moves across the Eternal City uncovering gossip on movie stars and other VIPs. The film famously spawned the term ‘paparazzo’ which came to describe a certain type of relentless celebrity photographer. One of the most iconic Italian films - an epic, breathtakingly stylish cinematic landmark. Martin Scorsese called it, “the film that conquered the world”. An exquisite tale of celebrity, La Dolce Vita casts an adoring yet critical eye towards 60s Rome. Set over seven decadent days, we follow Marcello Mastroianni’s philandering journalist as he pursues a happiness that’s always just out of reach.
In keeping with the 60s theme, the screening will be an outdoor drive-in event, and anyone with a gorgeous vintage vehicle is especially encouraged to attend. Dress code will be Fellini’s 60s, which allows for a multitude of possibilities from gorgeous gowns and black tie to circus characters, vagabonds and paparazzi.
