Episode #06: 8 1/2

The new episode of Cinema Italiano discusses Federico Fellini’s landmark film 8 1/2!

In our conversation, we go into how this classic tackles gender relations in modern Italy, Catholic guilt, the tension between honesty and deceit, and even how the film portends the coming of serious science fiction. This was an especially fun episode to research and record, to dive into one of the true icons of world cinema.

This episode features the following music excerpts by Nino Rota from the film’s soundtrack:

  • “La Passerella di Otto e Mezzo”
  • “Guido e Luisa Nostalgico Swing”
  • “La Passerella d’Addio”
