Filmmaker Damian Pettigrew was introduced to Federico Fellini in 1983, while filming a documentary about Italo Calvino, and eight years later, after Fellini's The Voice of the Moon had flopped, he collected ten hours of interview footage with the director. Completed for the tenth anniversary of Fellini's death, this documentary offers a fascinating inquiry into memory and art, mixing clips from Fellini's films with contemporary shots of the same locales in and around Rome. The master's ruminations become somewhat repetitive toward the end (Pettigrew promises hours more on a DVD release), but collaborators like Terence Stamp and Donald Sutherland are on hand to testify to Fellini's fetid imagination and imperial presence on the set. 105 min.
