Overview

Fruit of his long-standing fascination with the figure of the clown, Fellini’s documentary was made for Italian TV and – as with his other 70s films such as Roma and Amarcord – sees the director affectionately recreate episodes from his childhood. Fellini appears in the film himself meeting several important figures – from La dolce vita’s Anita Ekberg to French circus historian Tristan Rémy.
