La dolce Vita
La dolce vita is one of the most famous films ever made, a huge and scandalous international box-office success at the time and a classic ever since. It gave new terms to an international vocabulary: ‘la dolce vita’ and ‘paparazzi.’ It built on a tradition of city movies and ideas of European decadence in the period and influenced many films in its wake. This program gives a taste of where the sweet life came from and what it led to.

This series was curated by Richard Dyer and is sponsored by the Department of Communication and Culture, the Department of French and Italian, the Department of Gender Studies, The Media School, Cultural Studies Program and IU Cinema. Special thanks to Ryan Powell. Screenings are free, but ticketed.
