Italians and Design Film Series: "La Strada"

7 – 9 pm

In conjunction with the exhibition “Modern Living: Giò Ponti and the 20th-Century Aesthetics of Design.” Join the Georgia Museum of Art for films discussed by scholars, filmmakers and students. Each film will include a 15-minute introduction by a guest speaker and short conversations about the film following the screening.

Federico Fellini drew on his own circus background for the 1954 classic “La Strada.” Set in a seedy travelling carnival, this symbolism-laden drama was the winner of the first official Academy Award for Best Foreign-Language Film. Starring Giulietta Masina and Anthony Quinn. (1954, NR. 108 min.)

Films are sponsored by the UGA Parents Leadership Council.
