Film Focused on Fancy Footwork Closes Italian Classic Film Festival

The final film in the springtime Italian Classic Film Festival at Duquesne University will be screened on Sunday, April 26.

Ginger & Fred (1985, directed by Federico Fellini) will be shown at 3 p.m. in the Africa Room, Duquesne Union. Society in general and TV in particular are skewered by this nostalgic tribute focused on two retired performers who recreate the work of dancers Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers.

As with all other films in the series, which began in February, the screening is free and open to the public.

The event has been sponsored by the Honorary Consulate of Italy Pittsburgh in collaboration with the Center for International Relations at Duquesne and the 41st annual Western Pennsylvania Symposium on World Literatures.
