Fellini of the Spirits

Profoundly in love with life, artist Federico Fellini went through his existence always seeking its meaning. To mark the centennial of his birth – 20th January 1920 – this new documentary investigates in depth his passion for what he defined as “mystery”, the esoteric, the unseen world in a relentless pursuit of other possibilities, other dimensions, other travels and of everything that can make spirit and mind fly.

These aspects, present throughout all his cinematography, have been subject of investigation by the great Jungian psychoanalyst Ernst Bernhard, who not only unrevealed to him the secrets of subconscious, but he also showed Fellini a whole new vision of the world through Tarot reading and I Ching consultation. However, it will be the encounter with Gustavo Rol, known for “Giulietta degli Spiriti”, that, thanks to his experiments, will prove to him that other dimensions exist and there is no end to the travel of human beings.

A lot of voices will tell about the magic world of Fellini, from the tarot reader that Fellini always consulted to Terry Gilliam (Oscar winner for Brazil), from Giuditta Miscioscia, Gustavo Rol’s friend, to the director Damien Chazelle (Oscar winner for La La Land), from Fellini’s collaborators and dearest friends to Oscar winners’ directors such as William Friedkin (Oscar winner for The Exorcist).

Thanks to extraordinary materials of Rai Teche and Isitituto Luce archives and international archive contents, images from his movies and interviews to the intellectuals that most have studied his work, “Fellini of the Spirits” is an unprecedented, intimate and spiritual portrait of the great director.
