"Fellini was, for me, a great source of inspiration. La Strada and 81/2 were magnificent – but I like all of them. Each movie is its own world; I love the characters, the atmosphere and the intangible je ne sais quoi that emanates from every one."
David Lynch met Federico Fellini in his hospital room in Rome in 1993. It was a meeting which would have a profound effect on the American director as, only a few days after his visit, Fellini fell into a coma from which he would never recover.
But beyond a personal connection, a real artistic and intellectual affinity between Federico Fellini and David Lynch can be detected in their respective works and their lives. Both originally pursued a career as an artist – the Italian Maestro as a satirical cartoonist and the American director dreamed of becoming a painter at the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts – but eventually poured their incredible talent and their fascination with dreams and the subconscious into the silver screen. Several of their films, such as Fellini’s 81/2 (1963) and Lynch’s Mulholland Drive (2001), have earned their place in the Pantheon of world cinema.
An artistic kinship and a memorable encounter are at the heart of this homage by David Lynch to Federico Fellini, featuring a series of works unveiled for the first time at the Maison du diable, the cultural centre of the Fellini Foundation in Sion.
