Using re-enactments of scenes from her novels in the locations where they are actually set, as well as archival material, photographs and animation inserts, Ferrante Fever gives life to Elena Ferrante’s literary production. Giacomo Durzi’s documentary presents Ferrante’s deeply intimate writing and sketches the identity of an author, who despite an international success, keeps herself unknown.
