Conversations With Fellini
A creator of groundbreaking films, Federico Fellini was also a born raconteur who loved giving interviews and creating fictive, often fantastic, versions of his biography. Here is a collection of in-depth interviews by Costanzo Costantini, Fellini's frequent companion and scribe, over a period of three decades. By turns irreverent and challenging, Costantini questions Fellini about the origins, personal expectations, and inspirations behind his films. The result is a fascinating, engaging discourse on his life and work. Richly illustrated with movie stills and sketches, Conversations with Fellini also includes the poignant recollections of Fellini's wife and longtime collaborator, Guilietta Masina, comments from well-known directors, actors, and writers, and an extensive filmography.
