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). Fellini of the Spirits is an unprecedented, intimate and spiritual portrait of the great director.
