Finding Fellini centers around a Jewish woman’s escape from the brutal realities of apartheid South Africa into a Fellini infused cinematic landscape.
Projection images from the maestro’s films, as well as Fellini quotes, weave together representing the creativity, freedom and vibrancy Fellini symbolizes to a woman running from the horrors of her home country where repression is the suffocating norm.
Over the course of a lyrical hour, Metrikin takes us on a journey of poignant, powerful and comic stories of growing up in a conflict-ridden country.
Intertwined with magical moving images, we wind up in Italy, toggling between Rome and Venice, on a glorious adventure of self-discovery through the cinematic world of the one and only Federico Fellini.
“Dear Mr. Fellini, I know you’ve never seen me in the flesh but Mr. Fellini you’ve definitely dreamed about me because every night I dream of you.”
“Director Guy de Lancey has woven Metrikin’s moving text with potent imagery that makes you feel like you are inside a particularly surreal dream.” – NY Theatre Guide
