As we have revealed a couple of weeks ago, this year’s theme for the fourteenth edition of Amarcort Film Festival is titled Sulla STRADA di Fellini, a play on words between the name of the famous Fellini masterpiece La Strada and the fact that, in Italian, “being sulla strada di” is something like “following the path of”.
Being this the topic, Amarcort 21 has organized three conferences on three great directors influenced by Fellini during their careers.
Sulla STRADA di Fellini – David Lynch
When: Thursday 25th November, 6 p.m.
Where: Teatro degli Atti in Rimini
Speaker: Matteo Marino, one of the leading experts on David Lynch, founder of davidlynch.it
David Lynch, all-round artist and director whose classification is impossibile, has always recognised his strong bond with Federico Fellini and his cinematography. In addition to having remembered the Maestro with several essays, he has often tapped into his work as source of inspiration for his masterpieces.
The oneiric and the unconscious, the dark side of his characters, the contrasts between lights and shadows in his films, the mystery, the surrealism and the painting which often inspires his films: an overview on his typical traits, so difficult to categorize, on an artist who, born on the same day of Fellini, has followed a great part of the STRADA (path) traced by the Maestro.
