I have just posted a "suggested meetup" which is really an invitation to join Ciné Arts Cleveland! for a very special film by famous Italian Director Federico Fellini. Please RSVP here or you are certainly welcome to visit Cine Arts (click here)
This event will need at least three RSVPs before it came become an OFFICIAL event. So please go to the Suggested Meetup page and RSVP.
This is a very special screening. This was Federico Fellini's last film before he died in 1993. It was never released in the United States and actually was never imported until this past
May when it had a premiere screening for only one night in New York City. It is not available on DVD.
Thanks to Cinematheque Director John Ewing, and at considerable cost, we will have a rare opportunity to screen this Fellini masterpiece here in Cleveland. After one showing here the 35 mm print goes back to Italy.
Chances are that this will be your only opportunity to see Fellini's final film - his FINE.
His films included: La Dolce Vita, La Strada, 8½, and a host of others. But who was Federico Fellini? He was, beyond a doubt, the most influential film maker in the history of cinema. Many, myself
included, consider him the greatest director in the history of cinema. Those with a particular interest may review a snippet of his achievements here (click here). -- Bill Johnson, Ciné Arts Cleveland!

THE VOICE OF THE MOON
LA VOCE DELLA LUNA
Italy/France, 1990, Federico Fellini
Roberto Benigni stars in Federico Fellini’s final film, the only Fellini movie never released in North America. (We will show a rare 35mm print from Europe that is temporarily in the U.S.)
A hit in Italy, where it was nominated for nine David di Donatello Awards (Italy’s Oscar) and won three (including Best Actor), The Voice of the Moon is a surrealistic comedy/drama in which a former mental patient obsessed with the moon (a true lunatic) and an ex-prefect team up to traverse a cultural landscape peppered with pagans, pompous fools, beauty queens, grotesques, and other eccentrics.
“A cockeyed lament on a world gone haywire, where traditions are dismissed and sensitive souls—what’s left of them—look to the moon for magic and nourishment.” –San Francisco Chronicle.
Adults only. Ohio premiere. Subtitles. 120 min. Special admission $12; members and age 25 & under $10; no passes,
twofers, or radio winners. Print courtesy of Istituto Luce – Cinecittà (Rosaria Folcarelli); special thanks to BAMcinématek (Florence Almozini, David Reilly).
This special screening is part of a series that Cinematheque is calling the Cleveland Cultural Gardens Film Fest. It will consist of 10 films from ten of the communities represented in the Cleveland Cultural Gardens.
If you love Italy, the Italian culture and language , you will like this meet-up! We are a mixed group. Some are native speakers; others speak well, and others would like to learn. Some of our meetings are all in Italian, others in English and Italian.
