Original Hungarian vintage movie poster for Fellini's Clowns from 1972 by Laszlo Lakner.

I clowns (also known as The Clowns) is a 1970 film by Federico Fellini about the human fascination with clowns and circuses. It is a docufiction: part reality, part fantasy. The film has sometimes been referred to as the first mockumentary in film history, although 1964's A Hard Day's Night may have a superior claim to that distinction. Being documentary and fiction in one, The Clowns distinguishes itself by being a mockumentary with unique characteristics, not the least of which is reflecting Fellini's own increasing fascination with how documentary films reflect "reality". Fellini would further explore this semi-fictional documentary genre in 1972's Fellini's Roma and 1987's Intervista, both of which contain unreliable depictions of Fellini himself making the film within the film narrative.

The author of the poster, Laszlo Lakner, is one of the most prominent Hungarian artists who are recognized for creating exceptional works in pop art style.
