Centennial Anniversary of Fellini

As an institution with a consistent focus on the history of cinema, a comprehensive Federico Fellini retrospective is the least we can do to mark his centennial. He was a great inventor of cinematic forms and a complex artist – paradoxical, tormented, light-hearted, provocative, introspective, brutal, idealistic and jaded all at once. He recreated the world through his lens, while remaining a sharp observer of his contemporaries and the many sensitivities of his time.

Fellini won the René Clair Award in 1986

Synopsis

Ginger and Fred are a fading artistic duo who impersonate Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire. They make an appearance on the kind of unbelievably extravagant show that can only be found on Italian TV. A grotesque and entirely accurate portrayal of television in the age of Berlusconi.

Director

Federico Fellini was one of the greatest Italian writers and directors of the 20th century, and one of the most illustrious filmmakers in the history of cinema. He won the Palme d'or at Cannes in 1960 for La dolce vita, and took home the Oscar for Best Foreign-Language Film four times (La strada, Nights of Cabiria, 8 ½ and Amarcord), a record he shares with his compatriot Vittorio De Sica. Initially associated with neo-realism, Fellini’s work evolved over the course of the 1960s toward a unique approach related to European modernism, a movement associated with Ingmar Bergman, Michelangelo Antonioni, Alain Resnais, Jean-Luc Godard and Andrei Tarkovsky. His films grew increasingly to embrace a proliferation of themes, deliberate artifice and the complete erasure of boundaries between dream, imagination, hallucination and reality.

On March 29, 1993, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences awarded him a lifetime achievement Oscar, “in recognition of his place as one of the screen’s master storytellers.” (Wikipédia)

«Tout Cinecittà et pas seulement son plateau fétiche (le «5») a été réquisitionné par Federico Fellini pour le tournage de Ginger et Fred. Le film réunit dans un cinglant pastiche de la télévision commerciale les deux interprètes favoris du Maître, Marcello Mastroianni et… Giulietta Masina, qu'on n'avait plus vue dans un film de Fellini depuis Juliette des esprits… C'est au cours du tournage que Fellini perd le procès qu'il avait intenté à Silvio Berlusconi contre les coupures de films à la télé. Le juge a reconnu l'atteinte à l'intégrité artistique de l'œuvre, mais estimé que les spectateurs s'y étaient habitués.»

Federico Fellini aurait eu 100 ans en 2020. Il a fait partie de ces cinéastes qui ont triomphé de leur vivant, dont la reconnaissance de leur apport au cinéma a été affirmée sans ambages, ce qui en retour a sans doute influencé les films qu’ils ont pu encore faire. Non pas qu’il ait gagné des prix à tout coup...
