Dear Shaded Viewers,

If you live or will be passing by  Paris over the next 2 1/2 months I highly recommend a stop by the Jeu de Paume and a visit to the amazing exhibition on the world of Federico Fellini. I went yesterday, bought the DVD and for sure will be going back, it will be up until  January 17th.

The curator, Sam Stourdze chose not to show things in chronological order but rather to take the angle of showing the work of Federico Fellini based on his obsessions. He  did an outstanding job exposing the visual laboratory of Mr. Fellini, I cannot insist enough, the exhibition is time well spent, it  includes interviews, film clips, photographs and drawings that were never shown before.
