Angel Field Festival: Film Screening: La Strada (1954)

Tuesday, 11 February 2020 Time: 1pm

Cert PG

To mark the 100 year anniversary of the birth of director Federico Fellini, the Festival is screening his 1954 film La Strada.

When Gelsomina (Giulietta Masina), a naïve young woman, is purchased from her impoverished mother by brutish circus strongman Zampanò (Anthony Quinn) to be his wife and partner, she loyally endures her husband's coldness and abuse as they travel the Italian countryside performing together. Soon Zampanò must deal with his jealousy and conflicted feelings about Gelsomina when she finds a kindred spirit in Il Matto (Richard Basehart), the carefree circus fool, and contemplates leaving Zampanò.
