The Girl in the FountainBy
With: Monica Bellucci
Anita Ekberg is the quintessential diva, symbolizing like nobody else the “dolce vita” depicted in Federico Fellini’s film. But the famous scene at the Trevi Fountain hides a much more chaotic life, that of an actress consumed by her own iconic image. Mixing archive footage and reenacted scenes by another icon – Monica Bellucci – the film retraces her outstanding path, while drawing a double portrait of actresses and women, providing a fresh look at femininity, fame and media exposure.
