It’s been a hundred years since the Italian filmmaking giant Federico Fellini was born. Since then, there is no doubt that he is celebrated for his enduring classics that explore the nature of dreams, memories and obsessions.

The Criterion Channel presents a selection of Fellini’s recently restored films, including his magnum opus “8 ½” from 1963. It stars Marcello Mastroianni as an Italian film director struggling to make his latest sci-fi epic. Originally made by Fellini to combat his writer’s block, the surrealist comedy-drama film has since become one of the greatest and most influential films of all time.

“8 ½” and other Fellini classics premiere March 25 on The Criterion Channel. Click here to stream.
