The temptations of Doctor Antonio: Whiteness and Fellini’s Cinematic Imaginary | 11.04.2020

A lecture via Zoom by by Dr. Shelleen Greene (UCLA) in cooperation with University of Arkansas for the 20th Week of the Italian Language and Fellini 100. Click here for more information.

 

This presentation will examine the trope of whiteness within Fellini’s first color film, The Temptations of Doctor Antonio (1962), arguing that the film’s setting within the EUR, or the Esposizione Universale Roma, allows for a meditation on Italy’s colonial legacies.
