Join us for this free online screening! Our usual monthly Italian Film series has shifted from an ''in-real-life'' (IRL) gathering to beam direct to your lounge-rooms. We'd usually have a delicious array of Italian food to share with you at the IRL screenings - so we suggest you snack up at home and transport yourself to Italy.

And what a feast this film is; 'La Dolce Vita', a classic film from 1960 and the master director - Fellini with this groundbreaking work. In fact, this year we celebrate the centenary of Fellini and this film will be the first of 2 incredible Fellini films we bring you to in this series. So prepare to be transported.

The Guardian rates it as no. 23 in the best movies of all time - ''Always a master of the grand tableau, Fellini captures Rome in staggering breadth, from the opening aerial shots of the city, the narrow streets, prostitutes' bedrooms through to aristocratic homes and around the historic landmarks on the back of a Vespa. He's like a tireless, voluble tour guide; you're never quite sure where he's going but you're compelled to follow''

The Italian film series is organised in collaboration with the Istituto Italiano di Cultura Sydney. This film will be subtitled in English.

The film follows Marcello Rubini, a journalist writing for gossip magazines, over seven days and nights on his journey through the "sweet life" of Rome in a fruitless search for love and happiness.

Personaggio centrale รจ il giornalista Marcello Rubini, testimone e complice di un mondo caotico e volgare, cinico, privo di valori e soprattutto minato da un'insopportabile noia di vivere.
