Eight and a Half
Rutgers University Press, Jan 1, 1987 - Performing Arts - 288 pages
The English translation of the dialogue and the complete continuity script of this comic work, recognized as the most important expression of the director's views about himself and his art. The story of the director's efforts to make the film communicates to its viewers an understanding of the processes of filmmaking itself: it depicts the conditions of creativity, the struggle waged between the individual and the world, a struggle that finally make some sense out of life and art.
