Professor Shelleen Greene (UCLA): 'Oenothea's Gaze: Donyale Luna in Fellini-Satyricon (1969)' CIMS Seminar Series

As part of its Seminar Series, the Cultural Identity and Memory Studies Institute welcomes Professor Shelleen Greene, Associate Professor of Cinema and Media studies at the UCLA School of Theater, Film and Television.

The presentation examines African American model and actress Donyale Luna, who performed the role of Oneathea in Fellini-Satyricon (1969). It argues that similar to many black women artists working in Italy during the 1960s and 1970s, Luna's presence in the film marks a shift in Italian visual culture during this period, registering both its colonial legacies and its new position within global media industries.

This event is free and open to students and staff from any discipline.
