There are no current or future screenings planned for this film.

“Federico Fellini manages to accomplish with film what mostly abstract painters do – namely, to communicate emotion without ever saying or showing anything in a direct manner, without ever explaining anything, just by a sort of sheer magic.”
—David Lynch

Fellini’s first feature as a director, made in tandem with Alberto Lattuada, follows a beautiful young woman who becomes entangled with a traveling vaudeville troupe and the complications that follow.
