090123_la-strada-movieCLASSIC MOVIE NIGHT — tonight, we had a showing of the 1953 classic Fellini B&W film La Strada with discussion afterwards.  I thought the film was way to simple, predictable, slow and boring.  But afterwards, we had an open discussion with Dr Solis, Fr Vallee & Fr Alvarez about the symbolism and meaning behind its “simpleness.”  I definitely have a greater respect for fim study after that … I didn’t see any symbols until they were pointed out … I’m too simple-folk.  Glad I went!
