Synopsis

Filmworks presents “In Search of Fellini,” a film that follows a young woman named Lucy on her journey to meet Italian filmmaker Federico Fellini. After living an extremely sheltered life, Lucy, played by Ksenia Solo, stumbles into a screening of a Fellini film and begins to relate to the characters while becoming enthralled with the cinematic world she encounters. Deciding to take a leap of faith, Lucy travels to Rome to find the famous director. On her own for the first time, Lucy must learn to find herself while also searching for Fellini. Also starring Maria Bello and Beth Riesgraf. Closed Captioning and other assistive listening services are not available for this film.

Reviews

"Nancy Cartwright, the voice of Bart Simpson, has made her first movie as a screenwriter and producer a charming drama about the love of movies and youthful passion." — Monica Castillo, The New York Times
"One gets the sense that if Il Mago (Fellini) still lived, he would approve, not only of Lexton’s flattering homage but also his understanding of the magic of cinema." — Andy Crump, Paste Magazine
