4K Restoration! Sold into the circus by her mother, an innocent peasant girl (Giulietta Masina) is caught up in a fateful conflict between the brutish strongman Zampanò and his archrival, a dreamy acrobat known as The Fool. Winner of the first-ever Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, La Strada was an early triumph that helped establish Federico Fellini as an arthouse legend.
The screening on Thursday, April 4, is presented in conjunction with the film course Early Maestro: The Cinema of Federico Fellini, taught by Maurizio Giammarco, Ph.D. On that date, seating for screening-only attendees will begin at 7:00 pm.
