Enter the world of Federico Fellini. The world behind his camera on the sets and backstages of his films captured by another hidden camera and brought to the light after 40 years belonged to Ferruccio Castronuovo. Between 1976 and 1986, Ferruccio made films showing the backstage activity of the films of Federico Fellini: ‘The City of Women’, ‘And the Ship Sails On’ and ‘Ginger and Fred’ unveiling a world apart, a city of the imagination, populated by unique characters, which had a life of its own, a veritable ‘Fellinopolis’. The exceptional interviews of Fellini’s most trusted collaborators, many of them Oscar winners, speak of their relationships with the Maestro, of working and living with him revealing Fellini’s playfulness, perfectionism, his charm and charisma, his inventions and lies, his manipulations, a new take on the man and his methods. Learn of Fellini’s views on women, on music, on method. Get lost with Fellini behind the scenes in ‘Stage 5’ of Cinecitta. Enter Fellinopolis.
