Federico

The memory of only a handful of filmmakers can be summoned by the mere mention of their first name. Such is the case with Italy's peerless giant, the great Federico Fellini. Fueled by his unbridled imagination, il maestro evoked the times of his life (La Dolce Vita), the mysteries of his craft (8 1/2) and the memory of his youth (Amarcord) in evergreen classics that will outlive us all. Using as springboard the Miami Premiere of Ettore Scola's loving portrait of his dear friend, How Strange To Be Named Federico, the Gables Cinema presents a weeklong celebration of the magic that is Fellini, including three of his most beloved gems in gleaming restorations.
