Federico Fellini and Sergei Paradjanov
One of Sergei Parajanov’s many celebrity fans was the legendary Italian master Federico Fellini (8 1/2, La Dolce Vita, Amarcord). Here’s a letter Fellini wrote to Paradjanov. It apparently wasn’t enough to receive a letter from Federico Fellini and Parajanov transformed it into an artwork. He did a similar thing with Antonioni.
“With the death of Parajanov cinema lost one of its wizards. Parajanov’s beauty and fantasy will forever fascinate and bring joy to the people of the world.”
