A must-see for Fellini fans! From 1976 to 1986 Ferruccio Castronuovo had unprecedented access to the legendary Italian director's set in Studio 5 of the Cinecittà studios. Ferruccio Castronuovo had total freedom to film behind the scenes of the movies City of Women (1980), And the Ship Sails On (1983) and Ginger and Fred (1985). But his material lay mostly hidden in the archives of the Cineteca Nazionale for 40 years. Silvia Giulietti combined the astonishing footage with interviews with Fellini's oscar winning collaborators Lina Wertmüller, Dante Ferretti and Maurizio Millenotti. "An extraordinary documentary that offers us a new opportunity to reflect on the greatness of the Rimini filmmaker and explores the dreamlike fabric of his art." (Anonimacinefili)
