A Special Event! Donald Cozzens discusses
Italy | 1954 | Federico Fellini
Pope Francis’s all-time favorite movie (mentioned in a September interview) is this moving Fellini fable that charts the tragicomic relationship between a brutish, itinerant circus strongman (Anthony Quinn) and the simple, innocent waif (Giulietta Masina, Fellini’s wife) whom he buys, employs as a clown, and exploits as a slave. Donald Cozzens, a prominent priest, author, and professor at John Carroll University, will lead a discussion after the movie, perhaps illuminating why the first Jesuit pope likes it so much.
