From La Dolce Vita to 8 1/2, Federico Fellini has contributed numerous classics to the world of cinema that frequently appear on lists of the greatest films ever made, and also added the word "paparazzi" to the dictionary.
Beginning with his early life spent in the quiet coastal town of Rimini, we explore how Fellini grew from his early roots in Italian Neorealism to developing his very own iconic - Felliniesque - cinema, analysing Fellini's ideas on the nature of truth and lies along the way.
