The film uses re-enactments of scenes from Ferrante’s novels in the real locations where they are set, archival materials and photographs, and animation inserts to reconstruct Ferrante’s narrative universe, according to the production notes. What “Ferrante Fever” will not be is an investigation into the real identity of Elena Ferrante, a subject which made headlines recently. The docu will, however, look into Ferrante’s choice to remain anonymous.
