‘Dreams. A Tribute to Fellini’

An exhibition of lithographs by David Lynch in honour of the Italian director completes the ‘Amarcord Fellini’ cycle.

The Filmoteca de Catalunya is ending its own tribute to Federico Fellini with an exhibition in his honour. To commemorate the Italian director’s 100th birthday several acts are taking place in the city of Barcelona, and the Filmoteca is offering an exhibition called ‘Dreams. A Tribute to Fellini’ with 11 lithographs created by David Lynch, based on the final scene of his film, ‘81/2’ (Italian: Otto e Mezzo) (1963). The lithographs are complemented with original drawings by Fellini himself that have been lent by the Fellini Foundation for Cinema. In addition to this, the exhibition will also include a screening of the documentary by Jon Nguyen ‘David Lynch: The Art of Life’ (2016).

Don’t forget that ‘Amarcord Fellini’ ends this month (February) and you can watch the second and last block of this cycle until 21 February. The next sessions will be held on Tuesday, 11 February with ‘Orchestra Rehearsal’ (Italian: Prova d’orchesta) at 6.30 pm and ‘Fellini's Casanova’ (Italian: Il Casanova di Federico Fellini) at 8.00 pm.
