Often described as one of the most personal and self-analytical films ever made, Fellini?s masterpiece ?8?? is a powerful meditation on the relationship between dreaming and the process of filming. Marcello Mastroianni is cast as Guido Anselmi, a celebrated director struggling to find inspiration for his new movie. Needing to escape his wife, his mistress, and industry peers, Anselmi retreats into the world of the subconscious, discovering personal recollections, dreams and fantasies. In Fellini?s own words, the film is the story of ?a film director who is trying to put together the pieces of his life?and to make sense of them, to understand what they mean.?
?8?? won Oscars? for Best Foreign Language Film and Costume Design, and was also nominated for Directing, Writing and Art Direction. The central conflicts of the film reflect Fellini?s own tensions ? religion vs. sexuality, intellect vs. sensuality and dreams vs. reality. Like Anselmi, Fellini dedicated himself to the exploration of his own dreams in order to become more self-aware; these explorations can now be experienced in the exhibition of Fellini?s two-volume Book of Dreams, on display through April 19 in the Academy?s Grand Lobby Gallery.
