Federico Fellini / Ermanno Olmi

We begin the new year with a juxtaposition of two of the most exceptional directors of Italian cinema. On the one hand, there is Federico Fellini, whose films La strada (1954) or La dolce vita (1960) made him one of the most famous filmmakers the world over. As counterpoint, we present the somewhat less popular, but no less exceptional work of the recently deceased director Ermanno Olmi. [...]

Michail Kalik

Between 1961 and 1968, Soviet-Jewish filmmaker Mikhail Kalik (1927–2017) directed three films whose originality, humanity and highly personal filmic language render them the finest examples of the cinema of the Soviet Thaw. A closer observation of his manifold, impressively concise film opus reveals an innovative, self-confident film artist ingeniously working with the full breadth of cinema. [...]
