La Dolce Vita

Three hours long and without a wasted moment, Federico Fellini’s La Dolce Vita burst upon an astonished film world in 1960, part of a modern moment in Italian and world cinema that included the French New Wave and England's “kitchen sink” dramas, not to mention the glamour of James Bond and everything everyone wanted to believe about the ’60s. From its flying statue of Jesus to its big dead fish on a beach, Fellini’s epic snapshot follows a gossip journalist (Marcello Mastroianni) as he floats and bounces from incident to incident on a round of parties and assignations, including an iconic meeting with Anita Ekberg as they step into the Trevi Fountain. Scored with bounce and lilt by Nino Rota and shot in glorious widescreen black and white, this is a hypnotic exercise in style and atmosphere that envelops the viewer in a disorienting, decadent vision of empty dazzle. The emptiness and the dazzle are both the point. The San Antonio Museum of Art partners with Slab Cinema for a outdoor screening of the classic, complete with food trucks and a cash bar provided by The Brooklynite.
