Fellini behind the curtains, observing the great director through the eyes and the lenses of Ferruccio Castronuovo, Fellini's trusted partner, who filmed him between the '76 and '86.
Enter the backstage world of Federico Fellini, showing the backstage activity of his films and
unveiling a world of imagination populated by unique characters. Exceptional interviews with Fellini's most trusted collaborators explore their relationships with the Maestro, revealing a new take on the legendary Director.
This excellent documentary observes the great master at work through the camera of Ferruccio Castronuovo, Fellini's partner and the only one entrusted to film him between '76 and '86. We discover intimate, fascinating and authentic aspects of the famous Director. I particularly enjoyed being privy to his creative process and unique cinema vision. Fellini gave Ferruccio "carte blanche" to film him and obviously felt truly genuine in front of his friend's camera.
Fellini's world is stunningly imaginary and populated by legendary Oscar-winning
collaborators who recount the work and allows us a real peek behind the scenes.
The never-before-seen moments, anecdotes, unpublished images, and interviews with his closest collaborators are a glimpse into the world of a truly great Master of Cinema.
“Fellinopolis is the definitive work (so far) of how Federico Fellini not only influenced an entire generation of filmmakers, but created a timeless collection of masterpieces which continues to inspire directors and writers worldwide.” - Licia Biglands. Accenti
