Watch The French Trailer For Ettore Scola’s How Strange To Be Named Federico

On July 9th, Carlotta will release Ettore Scola’s Fellini documentary: Qu’il est étrange de s’appeler Federico, which first screened at the Venice Film Festival in 2013.

From Jay Weissberg’s review of the film for Variety.

The title doesn’t work in English, but Fellini lovers won’t care. “How Strange to Be Named Federico: Scola Narrates Fellini” is Ettore Scola’s affectionate tribute to his friend, a magical trip through history and memory consisting of re-creations and clips that recount, in impressionistic scenes, the decades shared by these two deities of cinema.

There doesn’t appear to be a distributor for the film in the US yet.
