"The fact is, you can't understand the present we're in... without knowing the past. And you can't understand your own culture without knowing those of others. In this regard, Fellini's work is like a treasure chest. You open it up and there, right in front of your eyes, a world of wonders springs up - ancient wonders, new ones, provincial wonders and universal ones... real wonders and fantastic ones. And great masters like Fellini are like lighthouses... to guide us into that harbor." - Martin Scorsese

This documentary is in honor of one of the most important Maestros of Italian Cinema, Federico Fellini. It features a college of rare interviews with those who met and worked with Fellini, his friends and collaborators who share thoughts, laughs, confidences and remembrances of the Maestro.

The Magic of Fellini is an exploration of the director's dreams, his drawings and his sense of making films as making love. Included are interviews with actors who have worked with Fellini and the many directors who were influenced by his work. The interviews are intercut with clips from Fellini's films, behind-the-scenes footage, his drawings, photographs and personal memorabilia.
