In Search of Fellini

A sheltered small-town Ohio girl who loves movies but dislikes reality, discovers the delightfully bizarre films of Federico Fellini, and sets off on a strange, beautiful journey across Italy to find him. A sweet and fantastical coming of age film that’s steeped in Fellini-esque fantasy, starring Ksenia Solo from the Showcase series, Lost Girl.

Parental guidance recommended for mature content and nudity.

“The quasi-magical realist film In Search of Fellini has its heart in the right place but wears its studied quirks on its sleeve, leading with influences and references rather than a strong story. Co-writer Nancy Cartwright (the voice of Bart Simpson) draws from her personal experiences pursuing the legendary Italian film director Federico Fellini in her youth as the inspiration for this whimsical tale of film, fandom and finding your way in a very intimidating world…The plot makes not a lick of sense, but the imagery is striking, and the adoration of Fellini’s films comes through loud and clear.”
- Katie Walsh, The Los Angeles Times
