Calgary Cinematheque's 2012-13 screening season will feature bi-monthly screenings out of the Plaza Theatre in Kensington, centered on two themes: World Cinema Critic’s Picks and Post-War Italian Cinema.
As a kick off to our season, ''81/2 is the first film where Fellini literally loses the plot in favour of the dream-like, this weaves in and out of the memories, fantasies and relationships of celebrated film director Guido Anselmi (Fellini alter-ego Mastroianni), as he is struggles to find inspiration for his latest (science fiction) film. Complex, sexy, endlessly imaginative and boasting moments of magic, this is one of the best films about filmmaking, cinema's greatest evocation of a creative mental block and perhaps the fullest expression of the term Fellini-esque.
