Fellini of the Spirits
One cinematic dream weaver pays homage to another in these shimmering, fantastical journeys through the unconscious mind. With his meta-cinematic landmark 8½, Federico Fellini fully embraced a delirious, stream-of-consciousness style in the autobiographical tale of a creatively frustrated film director. In his recent short THE RABBIT HUNTERS, fellow surrealist Guy Maddin communes with the spirit of the Italian master—whose astral projection is played by Isabella Rossellini—while exploring his own obsessions with ghostly presences and dreamscapes.
