HON 371 - The World of Fellini's Cinema


Prerequisite, acceptance to the University Honors Program, or consent of instructor. Federico Fellini, Italy's greatest film director, was voted in 1992 the most important film director in the history of the cinema by 100 directors and people in the industry (edging out Orson Welles); and, in a parallel vote on the best films during the same year, two of Fellini's-La strada and 8 1/2-were selected in a list of the best 10 films ever made. This course investigates the nature, development, and impact of Fellini's artistic, taken within its cultural and intellectual contexts. The course will explore how a personal vision, even a poetic and fantastic perspective, may be developed in a medium that is too often seen as only a business or a low-brow form of entertainment. (Offered as needed.) 3 credits
