Marco Ferreri, bearded prophet, leading filmmaker, forgotten director. Many definitions have been given to define he’s cinema: many have thought that his work had genius but was discontinuous. He has always been considered a “scandalous” director causing the strength of his direction to recede in the background. In he’s cinema, there is a research of a hidden reality that tries to show a glimpse of possible future scenarios in the only way an artist can do, through his masterpieces.
