The Italian drama film La Strada is the second title entry into our brand new sub-label 'World Cinema'.

La Strada won the inaugural Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film in 1957.

Regarded by some as Federico Fellini's (LA DOLCE VITA) finest work and the winner of the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language Film, LA STRADA is a masterpiece of 20th Century filmmaking. Sold by her impoverished mother to Zampano (Anthony Quinn, ZORBA THE GREEK), a brutish fairground wrestler, waif-like Gelsomina (Giuletta Masina, GINGER AND FRED) lives a life of drudgery as his assistant.

After taking to the road with a travelling circus, a budding relationship with a gentle-natured tightrope walking clown offers a potential refuge from her master's clutches. Trapped by her own servile nature, Gelsomina waivers and Zampano's volcanic temper erupts with tragic consequences.

Director: Federico Fellini

Cast: Giulietta Masina, Anthony Quinn, Richard Basehart
