Nights of Cabiria (1957)

To complement our Winter Reading Program, While the City Sleeps, the Library is screening films that unfold in the wee hours when most of us are soundly asleep.
While the City Sleeps: After Dark
Monday, February 18, 2013
6:30pm @ Central Library

While most of us are sawing logs, a few hearty insomniacs find in the wee wee hours an opportunity for adventure, terror, and love. These titles have been selected to complement this year’s Adult Winter Reading Program, While the City Sleeps.

Here Italian director Federico Fellini cast his real-life wife, Guilietta Masina, as a waifish Roman prostitute who never gives up hoping for a better life despite what the world throws at her. It later became the Broadway musical Sweet Charity.
