FELLINI DEGLI SPIRITI

Category: Special Events

Synopsis
Deeply in love with life, Fellini has gone through his existence always looking for its meaning. One hundred years after the birth of the Maestro, born in Rimini on 20 January 1920, the documentary investigates in depth his passion for what he called, in short, the mystery, the esoteric, the "unseen world" in an incessant search of other possibilities, other dimensions, other journeys and all that can make the spirit and mind fly. These aspects, present in all his films, were his object of investigation initially with the great Jungian psychoanalyst Ernst Bernhard, who not only revealed the secrets of the Unconscious, but also showed him a new vision of the world through the Tarot reading and consultation of I Ching. But it will be the meeting with Professor Gustavo Rol, known during the shooting of JULIET OF THE SPIRITS, who, through his experiments, will prove to Fellini that there are indeed other dimensions and that there is no end to the journey of human beings.
