feasts instead of fashion. well to see his movies is to be transported into a dreamscape to be surrounded by ideals of beauty only to realize one is hopelessly caught up in that vortex of absurdity and chaos that is in fact every day life italian director fit if he dreams the big dreams with films like. and the half widely recognized as one of the greatest filmmakers of all time phil you would have been 100 years old on monday cue to take a moment to remember him. maybe it'll go to. his films were deeply personal visually stunning and as bizarre as life itself that illegal fellini would have turned 100 this year if you have had more influence over the art of cinema around the world organizations like the british film institute are celebrating 2020 as the year of fellini. when i'm not
making movies fellini said i feel i'm not alive he won 5 oscars including a lifetime achievement award a year before he died. strada fellini's 3rd film made him famous. starring his wife and muse juliette thomasina. it was a word for the press following the suffolk starlet played by anita expert. my channel must be on he stood in for the director in films like 8 and a half playing a filmmaker struggling with an artistic crisis martin scorsese watches it every year to cinema was the stuff of dreams and nightmares but in films and life fellini never lost his sense of humor. certainly didn't. fantastic and here to talk more about the maestro of italian phenomena is our film
expert scott roxboro scott fit in because he is regarded as one of the all time greats he's absolutely a giant he's even spondon adjective funny ask what was it that made his films so special yes funny i mean that adjective fellini eskil we say that we mean sort of a scene or an image that's so bizarre so so strange hallucinatory it it almost feels like a dream and i think that's the key to fellini's work he came from realist tradition but he sort of left that and his his films have a real dreamlike quality about them yeah using fusing images that seem to sprout out of the deeper. depths of the imagination and. i think that's sort of his is greatest contribution to cinema because he showed that he recognized that cinema as a medium is really closest to the feeling of dreams but with his image as a little to fight on task they were watching the film is feels real you know sort of like when you're in a dream it feels real wall while you're dreaming and that combination sort of is
his his sort of autobiographical elements they put in this film combined with the sort of task imagery i think that is his greatest contribution sort of to the art of cinema ok so what kind of never if he as you probably expect larger than life. on set his sets were sort of kick completely chaotic he was more like a circus director that a felony or a very you know very domineering but also sort of crazy and he apparently talk constantly using his hands he was italian of course even while he was driving he would just constantly be talking to this really interesting about it though as a filmmaker was he he never recorded sound on set he would have his actors just mouth and he sort of old dialogue make stuff up on the spot and then later in post-production he would double he would write just write dialogue and then dub them off to using other actors to dub the the voices because he would say oh yeah often actors real voice doesn't match their face but interesting i he did have his critics as well i mean there are people who consider his film superficial aimless even for him is any of that justified you think i don't think so i think he's
a really tremendous great director i think that interpretation of his work misunderstands what fellini was doing i mean he did sort of get rid of narrative in a lot of ways and was very fantastic in a sort of dreamlike imagery but it wasn't because he wanted to create fantasies he thought that version of reality is more realistic because his argument was like life is disjointed life is often surreal and bizarre it doesn't follow a straight linear narrative as you often see in films and so his argument is basically a life resembles a fellini film so how would you describe then his impact on cinema who has he. who hasn't really i mean famously always tip his hat to fellini but i think if you look over some very recent directors is probably the most obvious assessor is another italian polo who had the all the great beauty for example and that film is an inspiration it's almost sort of just an update. for for the modern age you know
it's about you know social satire it's a it's about 16 behavior i mean it's incredibly fellini ask. maybe on the other side you have something like. a robot which one the best director oscar in 20 last year and the way he uses imagery very is a vocative of early works even though grew up halfway around the world in mexico ok well obviously this will be a great occasion to watch films again on the occasion of this film thanks very much for all of those insights. well knitting and crocheting are all the rage again they were trendy already for last year's summer fashion collections but many people are also taking a panty cross to help with stress and as a way out of social media something to do with your hands rather than endlessly texting well then there's kate jenkins who creates art with her crochet and knits
and the results are almost good enough to eat. tastefully arranged lovingly crafted and deceptively realistic kate jenkins baked goods always go down a treat at craft festivals but they're not edible everything here is knitted or crocheted. so here i'm just finishing off my display of their pretty sweet cakes so we have some kind of raisin here. in danish pastries so it's just kind of placing them in the right position so that they look as realistic as they possibly could on describing. her kate spake stand serves up everything from the buns. to bagels and tarts. jenkins creates her inventory in her studio on britain's south coast where she's well known for her humorous food creations.
she loves the sea and the local fresh fish both inspired her most successful solo exhibition to date a market stand full of seafood she also gets inspiration at her local bakery. writes will have my. passion fruit tall raspberry and lemon marang tarts black berry mousse and all kinds of bread cake jenkins is always on the lookout for new models she can spend months working on a particular project her studio. yarn in every shade and techniques of magine of all. i've experimented with lots of different things so i found this in 2 yarns together achieved a very realistic in fact quite quickly so by me me choosing which color
is to to mix together on the next machine i can then achieve the white effect for the bride. she uses a knitting machine from the 1960 s. it takes her 3 to 4 hours to make a loaf of bread. crocheting the little pastries takes even longer. crocheted baked goods have one advantage over edible ones they don't always remain as fresh as the day they were made. epstein has spent the last 5 decades travelling around the united states on a photographic exploration of his homeland is a was always to confront the living organism of american culture following through multiple eras issues and individuals while his most recent book entitled sunshine hotel gathers 175 photos taken between 969-2018 he says that

borders. the american dream over in 2004 epstein the son of a jewish furniture store owner documented the demise of his father's business. a family's ruined depicted as a parable of the structural transformation taking place in america's cities. a year later came hurricane katrina that steen captured the ecological disaster in all its apocalyptic beauty. ever since white european settlers arrived a deep seated belief in a fundamental right to conquer land and exploit natural resources has been firmly anchored in the american psyche that has had fatal consequences for the environment for an open society and for the nation as a whole. were coming from or their political era which was very
dignified under obama by there was a kind of moral center a sense of what's right and a motivation to create a construct that is truly democratic i think trouble represents the worst of america. and. is capitalizing. on the worst of america whose country is it epstein poses that question both in concrete terms and symbolically and he documents protests on native american reservations. an upside down u.s. flag as a symbol of resistance of preserving living space and civil rights his photos show that in this deeply divided country the future itself is at stake. which epstein sunshine hotel is not an easy book it's the disturbingly beguiling legacy of
