Iñárritu: “I hope Fellini will protect my film”

I hope Fellini will protect this film! Every director in the world has been influenced by him because his work is a cinematic cathedral,” Alejandro González Iñárritu does not hide the debt that Bardo (o falsa crónica de unas cuantas verdades) owes to the Maestro from Rimini and adds, “Bardo is not my autobiography, which would have been very boring. It’s an emography, an emotional biography where reality and dream influence each other, retracing things that have been lived, or perhaps only dreamed. Federico Fellini, Luis Buñuel, Roy Andersson and Alejandro Jodorowsky were able to mix the dream world with cinema and showed us how films are made of the same material as dreams, playing freely with time and space being both the result of our subconscious.

Bob Odenkirk and cinema of Italy

I really love Rome Open City, I would love to do a Los Angeles version of it,” Bob Odenkirk said yesterday in an online masterclass with the Giornate degli Autori for the presentation of Cecilia Miniucchi’s film Worlds Apart. “It would be a strange juxtaposition,” he explained, “and a curious parallel. L.A. is very different from Rome, it is an improvised city, made of sand, even people come and go.”

Italian cinema is romantic and beautiful, it exudes a sense of magic. Your films are not afraid to show poetry, unlike America where there is often fear and films are made for utility.
