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.
The year 2020 marked the 100th anniversary of the birth of Federico Fellini. Enter the world of Federico Fellini. The documentary juxtaposes never-before-seen material of the maestro at work with testimonies by some of Fellini’s most devoted coworkers and friends, among these, Lina Wertmüller, Nicola Piovani, Dante Ferretti, Maurizio Millenotti, Ferruccio Castronuovo and Norma Giacchero.
In doing so, the film reveals some of Fellini’s heretofore unknown and, at times, contradictory character traits, thereby uncovering the man behind the genius. Combining behind-the-scenes footage of Fellini at work with contemporary testimonies, thus creating a compelling narrative that binds past and present in an exquisite and unique creation. This is a special treat for Fellini fans and all fans of Italian cinema.
