Fellini Film Frolic Set For Academy In L.A. In January

fellini.jpgThe Academy of Motion Picture Arts & Sciences, while readying itself for next year’s Oscars, will honor Italian director Federico Fellini and the 50th anniversay of his film “La Dolce Vita” with an exhibition titled “Fellini Oniricon — The Book of My Dreams,” opening Jan. 24 at the Academy offices in Beverly Hills, Variety discloses.

One hundred sketches from Fellini’s personal journals comprising his often sexual dreams; nocturnal notes that inspired movie characters; and caricatures that Fellini drew of famous artists, including Pablo Picasso and Marcello Mastroianni, will go on display at the Academy two days after the Oscar nominations are announced. The exhibition runs through April 19.

Touted as the most comprehensive attempt to date to reconstruct the helmer’s fantasy world, “Fellini Oniricon” is divided into eight sections, which include “Dreaming and Filming,” “All These Ladies” and “Giulietta,” dedicated to his wife and muse, Giulietta Masina.

The show, co-produced by the Fellini Foundation, the Rome Film Festival and the Academy, also includes scores of on-set pictures documenting Fellini’s career as well as the original copies of his huge two-volume diary, which cover the years 1960-90.
