Bertolucci On Bertolucci

Delivering one of the most intense experiences at last year’s Venice festival, renowned filmmaker Luca Guadagnino and experienced editor Walter Fasano together launched into this atypical documentary portrait of Italy’s most celebrated living film director. After two years of sifting through archive footage, which in the end amounted to over three hundred hours’ worth, they pieced together a highly complex profile comprised exclusively of shots of Bertolucci speaking at various points during his colourful career.
