Around 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.
