Black Decagon Film Club will be screening Italian Maestro Federico Fellini’s adult fairy tale, and his first colour feature from 1965 ‘Juliet of The Spirits’. Fellini creates dazzling imagery, assisted by brilliant cinematography, production and set design. The screening will be preceded by a talk with Emanuele Taglietti, one of the production designers of the film, and the subject of the new book “Sex and Horror: The Art of Emanuele Taglietti” published by Korero Press. Emanuele will be signing from 6-7pm on Thursday 10th September then Screening and Talk from 7.30pm.
Emanuele Taglietti is an Italian comic book cover artist known for his outrageously raunchy and errie artwork. Throughout his acclaimed career in the 1970s and 1980s, the golden age of fumetti, he painted more than 500 covers for such books as Zora the Vampire, Sukia, Mafia, and 44 Magnum. Due to the pace of productions schedules, Taglietti was called on to produce dozens of paintings per month. Sex and Horror collects these paintings into one incredible book! We can’t wait to have Emanuele here not only for a signing but also a talk on his paintings and production design work.
