The Irreverent Ferreri


Irreverent, provocative, a maverick—to the point of paradox. A portrait of the brilliant master of Italian grotesque: Marco Ferreri. From his back and forth relationship with critics to the wild-eyed gaze he turned on the decadence of society to the perennial escape. It especially focuses on the close collaboration which resulted in a profound friendship with the Spanish screenwriter Rafael Azcona, a friendship later translated into such unforgettable masterpieces as The Queen Bee (1961), The Ape Woman (1964), The Hearing (1971), La Grande Bouffe (1973).
