Scorsese will present restored 'La Dolce Vita' at Rome Film Fest
Wednesday 27 October 2010
In a tribute to the 50th anniversary of Federico Fellini's
La Dolce Vita, director Martin Scorsese will attend the fifth annual International Rome Film Festival, October 28 - November 5, to officially present a digitally restored version of the 1960 classic film.
In a statement, Scorsese said of the iconic film, "Fellini brought something new to Italian cinema and with La Dolce Vita he conquered the universe," he said. "It's difficult to convey exactly how special the look of this picture was at the time."
The film starred Marcello Mastroianni and Anita Ekberg in a story about a journalist torn between the allure of Rome's elite socialites and domestic life. The festival also will exhibit Fellini's photographs, film clips and drawings, as well as re-creation of some of his movie sets.
The lineup at this year's festival includes the pilot for Scorsese's Boardwalk Empire from American television network HBO. Scorsese is also developing a television series which will be a prequel to his gangster film Goodfellas. He's teamed with Nicholas Pileggi, author of Wiseguy, which was adapted for the 1990 film about the life of mobster Henry Hill.
