The Italian Cultural Institute in Valletta participates in the "European Arthouse Cinema Day" celebrating the 100th Anniversary of Federico Fellini's birth through the projection, in restored version, of "Otto e mezzo (8½) ".

Struggling to find inspiration for his next project, acclaimed director Guido Anselmi (Marcello Mastroianni) wrestles with his dreams, memories and desires in his search for creativity. Blending visions with reality, Fellini’s exquisitely shot 8½ – now restored by Gaumont and Éclair – offers a unique portrayal of a restless creative talent battling with his past and the distractions of the present, as he fights to determine his future artistic voice. Elaborate and self-reflexive, 8½ is an impeccable example of Fellini’s unique style, a bravura and extravagance that has influenced countless generations of filmmakers – from Woody Allen to Wes Anderson. No. 4 in Sight & Sound’s Directors’ Poll of greatest films of all time (No. 10 in Critics’ Poll), 8½ is an undisputed classic of world cinema awaiting discovery by a new generation of cinemagoers.
