Federico Fellini

December 01, 2021 – January 12, 2022

The Museum of Modern Art

The Museum of Modern Art and Cinecittà present Federico Fellini, a complete retrospective honoring the famed Italian director. The retrospective includes 4K digital restorations of 21 features and three short films. The series will be presented entirely in person at MoMA’s Debra and Leon Black Family Film Center in the Roy and Niuta Titus Theaters from December 1, 2021, through January 12, 2022. The MoMA retrospective will open with Fellini’s semi-autobiographical I Vitelloni (The Young and the Passionate) (1953) and and the US premiere of Cinecittà’s 4K restoration from the original negative of La Strada (1954), winner of the first-ever Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film. MoMA has a long history of showcasing Fellini’s work, from exhibiting his film stills in the galleries in the 1970s to numerous film screenings, including those of the 10 Fellini films that are part of MoMA’s film collection.

 

Organized by La Frances Hui, Curator, Department of Film, The Museum of Modern Art, and Camilla Cormanni and Paola Ruggiero, Cinecittà.

Federico Fellini is part of the Federico Fellini 100 Tour, a series of centennial tributes to Federico Fellini (1920–1993), which travels to major museums and film institutions worldwide, coordinated by Paola Ruggiero and Camilla Cormanni, Cinecittà. All films have been digitally restored by Cinecittà, Cineteca di Bologna, and Cineteca Nazionale, with the exception of Nights of Cabiria and The White Sheik, which have been restored by Rialto Pictures and La Dolce Vita which has been restored by L’Immagine Ritrovata and the Film Foundation.
