Seasonal Special Happenings

The Mighty Quinn

When: Thu., Nov. 14 2013

The American Film Institute has called Italian director Federico Fellini's La Strada "one of the most influential films ever made." The tragicomic movie centers on a circus strongman (Anthony Quinn) who buys a young woman from her mother and then proceeds to dominate her and keep her away from his rival Il Matto. It's a surreal film, for sure, and Fellini once described it as a "dangerous representation" of his identity. Prominent priest, author and film buff, John Carroll professor Donald Cozzens will be on hand to lead a discussion after the screening. It shows at 7 tonight at the Cleveland Institute of Art Cinematheque. Tickets are $9. (Niesel)
