PARAJANOV.com – Federico Fellini’s letter to Sergei Parajanov

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 1971 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.
