      3) Films @ Shoman

      WHAT: Screening of Federico Fellini's Oscar-wining "La Strada"
      (1954)

      WHERE: Shoman Film Center

      WHEN: Tuesday August 5, 2003 - 6:30pm

      Yahoo Movie Review: Zampano (Anthony Quinn), a performer in a
      traveling carnival outside of Rome, purchases the young, poor
      Gelsomina (Giulietta Masina) to be his wife and assistant.
      Although she shows genuine enthusiasm as an assistant, putting
      on a fabulous clown act akin to Charlie Chaplin, nobody seems to
      appreciate her; she quietly endures a life of emotional coldness
      and cruelty. When she meets "The Fool," Ilmatto (Richard
      Basehart), a quicksilver trapeze artist who befriends her and
      offers her warmth, kindness, and an uplifting vision of the
      world, Gelsomina convinces herself that she and Zampano are in
      love. She is plunged into despair, however, after Zampano
      interferes in a jealous rage, precipitating a tragedy that will
      haunt him forever. Federico Fellini establishes a style and
      certain key themes in this film that he repeats as trademarks in
      subsequent films: the beach as a symbol of purity and release;
      haunting, soft female singing as a symbol of memory;
      examinations of Catholics and their religion as a cult behavior;
      and, above all, a chaotic, circus-oriented cyclical pattern that
      guides his films. The Oscar-winning LA STRADA is the perfect
      place from which to begin an exploration of Fellini's expertly
      crafted movies.

      MPAA Rating: Not Rated.

      Cast and Credits: Starring: Giulietta Masina, Anthony Quinn,
      Richard Basehart, Aldo Silvani
      Directed by: Federico Fellini
