The Clowns

the clowns still

We regret that we will unable to screen THE CLOWNS as scheduled — AMARCORD will show in its place.

(1970) dir Federico Fellini w/Fellini, Riccardo Billi, Tino Scotti [92 min]

This rarely-screened pseudo-documentary from Fellini explores his life-long fascination with clowns. From a recreation of a childhood encounter with the circus, to a farcical attempt to track down the last great European clowns, to a grand finale that only Fellini could conceive of, THE CLOWNS is wondrous, weird, and pure Federico!
