Federico Fellini

Italian Movies -

Unseen footage from Federico Fellini's last film will be shown at the Procida International Film Festival this weekend. Two hours of material from La Voce Della Luna (1990) has been boiled down into a half-hour film called Fellini Rush.

Festival organiser Enrico Ghezzi, who found the footage in the archives of state TV RAI, said "There are silent scenes, photos and rehearsals with dummies - a bit like the first rough work on a marble statue."

The short will be the culmination of the festival's inaugural day.
