Fellini

Fellini follows the life and career of master Italian film director, Federico Fellini.

Drawing on interviews with the filmmaker himself, as well as his colleagues, Hollis Alpert investigates the man and the legend while defining the boundaries between the two.

“Hollis Alpert’s new biography is filled with wonderful anecdotes about Fellini’s creative life. The book makes me want to see the films all over again.” — Paul Mazursky
