Cast: Frederico Fellini, Terence Stamp, Donald Sutherland, Roberto Benigni, Italo Calvino


In 1992, one year before his death, Italian director/screenwriter Frederico Fellini was interviewed by documentary filmmaker Damian Pettigrew. Fellini evokes memories of his childhood, speaks about his fear of women, confides his need for spirituality and seems serene in the face of death.

But especially, Fellini speaks abundantly about his work as a director. His remarks are interspersed with testimonies from some of his actors (Terence Stamp, Donald Sutherland, Roberto Benigni), his collaborators and his friends. Extracts of his films are shown as well as archival footage of him on the set, directing his films.
