+ intro by season programmer Pasquale Iannone
Indulge in this eye-popping vision of Ancient Rome, marinated in late-60s psychedelia.
Dir Federico Fellini
With Martin Potter, Hiram Keller, Max Born, Salvo Randone, Capucine
Fellini bookended the 1960s with two distinctive visions of Rome. La dolce vita explored the modern Eternal City, while Satyricon was the director’s loose adaptation of Petronius’ novel, written during the reign of Emperor Nero. Fellini himself described it as a science fiction rather than historical film, with ancient Rome ‘as remote and fantastical as the planets of Flash Gordon’.
