Italian Film Night
The Department of Foreign Languages and Literatures is pleased to present Italian Film Night on Tuesday, Aug. 29 at 7 p.m. in room 212 of the Eddy Building.
Federico Fellini's film "Nights of Cabiria": 1957, in Italian with English subtitles,¬†¬†110 minutes, in black and white.
"Le Notti di Cabiria" stands as one of Fellini's best because of the character of that invincible woman at the center of the story: Cabiria.¬†¬†Cabiria is a wide-eyed waif, a streetwalker living in a poor section of Rome where she owns her little house, has a bank account and dreams of a miracle.¬†¬†¬†As we follow her nights, a boyfriend steals 40,000 lire from her and nearly drowns her;¬†¬†a movie star on the Via Veneto takes her home with him; at a local shrine she seeks the Madonna's intercession, and then she meets an accountant who has seen her, hypnotized on a vaudeville stage, acting out her heart's longings.¬†¬†He promptly courts her.¬†¬†Is it fate that led to their meeting?¬†¬†Is this finally a man who appreciates her for who she is?
