Marcello Mastroianni plays Guido Anselmi, a director whose new project is collapsing around him, along with his life. One of the greatest films about film ever made, Federico Fellini’s _8½_ (Otto e mezzo) turns one man’s artistic crisis into a grand epic of the cinema. An early working title for _8½_ was _The Beautiful Confusion,_ and Fellini’s masterpiece is exactly that: a shimmering dream, a circus, and a magic act.
A celebration of revolutionary filmmaking.
Taking Virginia Woolf’s novel Orlando: A Biography as its starting point, academic virtuoso turned filmmaker Paul B. Preciado has fashioned the documentary, Orlando: My Political Biography, as a personal essay, historical analysis, and social manifesto which premiered and took home four prizes at the 2023 Berlin Film Festival.
