"La Fellinette," a debut by Francesca Fabbri Fellini, the maestro's niece, will be shown in commemoration of the centenary of Federico Fellini.
Born in 1965, Fellini is a journalist and writer, and the last direct heir of the iconic director. Her 12-minute film has been described as "a fairy tale suspended between dream and reality made in mixed media, partly in cartoon and partly in live action." Fabbri Fellini says the film's inspiration came from a drawing that Fellini made for her when she was a child after a walk on the beach.
We'll keep you posted on when the film will be available internationally. In the meantime, click here to follow Francesca Fabbri Fellini on Facebook where she communicates the latest on her adventures with the film.
