Federico Fellini is the most famous filmmaker in the world. What few people know about Federico is that he had a brother, Riccardo, who was also a director. What nobody knows and has never been explored is the complicated relationship that united and divided them throughout their lifetime. A story that exposes unfamiliar and unexpected aspects of Federico’s inner life, de facto revealing a different Fellini.

Director’s statement
Riccardo Fellini is a figure who is almost totally unknown to the public, whose human and professional story has yet to be told. We came across his story by chance and were mesmerized by a personality forced to submit to an impossible comparison with his brilliant brother. We were thunderstruck by the pages of the book of dreams in which Riccardo appeared. We were surprised to realize to what degree Federico’s dreams were obsessed by the shadow cast by his brother, and stunned at the violence of his reactions.
