The Films of Federico Fellini at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

This sounds great:

Federico Fellini (1920-1993) began working as a screenwriter on such Italian neorealist landmark films as Rome, Open City and Paisà, but by the time he took the director's chair in 1950, he was starting to question the genre's principles and its focus on socioeconomics. In attempt to make a stylistic departure, Fellini communicates his characters' hopes, dreams, fears, passions, and inspirations. The series includes I vitelloni, La strada, and Nights of Cabiria, three of Fellini's earlier efforts, which demonstrate his interest in a character's emotions. With 8 ½, Fellini abandons any interest in reality, creating his own personal fantasy world.
