8 1/2 is a 1963 film written and directed by Federico Fellini. The world-famous Italian director Guido Anselmi is smack in the middle of a creative and personal crisis. He is working on a number of new film projects, but his childhood memories and sexual fantasies won’t leave him alone. The director has a hard time finding meaning in life and cannot begin working on his new film. He inevitably turns inward to reassess the key events in his life: his childhood, the church, his relations with his family, the women, and a myriad of nightmares accompanying each one of these... Maybe his new film should be based on this material. Guido begins to contemplate the absurdity of his profession, his relation with art and the opposite sex, and the meaning of human existence. The film moves through the tunnels of existence and human nature, addressing with great aesthetical grace the fundamental areas of interest for cinema in terms of the relation between society and the inner world of the individual.
