Roundtable: Gender and sexuality in Federico Fellini’s cinema
We welcome film scholars and writers to the stage for this insightful debate.
Total runtime 100min
Fellini didn’t shy away from the exploration and expression of sexual desire, and often created controversial portrayals of women and men throughout his career. What approaches can we employ to discuss and interpret these portrayals in 2020? How do they relate to attitudes and values in Italian society at that time? What’s the relationship between Fellini’s representation of sexuality, femininity and masculinity, and his exuberant, surreal style? We welcome film scholars and writers Richard Dyer, Danielle Hipkins, Dalila Missero and Julia Wagner for this insightful debate.
