“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, Constantini questions Fellini about the origins, personal experiences, influences, and inspirations behind his films.  Fellini responds with remarkable candor and characteristic wit.  He reveals that his masterpiece, La Dolce Vita, was shot without a script.  He makes unequivocal pronouncements on filmmaking – “It’s immoral to tell a story which has a specific beginning and conclusion.” And much more.  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, Giulietta Masina, comments from well-known directors, actors and writers, and an extensive filmography.”
