Happy Birthday Fellini

MUBI Special

To honor Federico Fellini’s birthday, we present a double feature of charming early films that made the maestro’s name, both featuring his wife and muse, the one-of-a-kind Giulietta Masina.

Nights of Cabiria

Federico Fellini Italy, 1957

Expired

Giulietta Masina took home the best actress prize from Cannes for her spectacular turn in this Fellini classic. Before his baroque surrealist epics, Fellini made the most intimate of character driven films, of which Nights of Cabiria stands at the forefront with unmatched warmth, charm, and heart.

The White Sheik

Federico Fellini Italy, 1952

Expired

To honor Federico Fellini’s birthday, we present a double feature of charming early films that made the maestro’s name. The White Sheik was his first film directed solo and already set the standard: the deft, often delirious flow between real life and dreams, worries, desires and fantasies.
