Waiting for Il Cinema Ritrovato: Documentaries

Waiting for the XXXIV edition of Il Cinema Ritrovato Festival (Bologna, August 25-31), let’s go on with the exploration of the sections of this year’s rich program, this time with Documents and Documentaries 2020.
Dedicated to classic documentaries (such as Tempo di viaggio, co-directed by Andrei Tarkovsky and Tonino Guerra), or films about cinema history and filmmaking, this section offers the best new documentaries in the field including the stories of legendary directors (Jean Pierre Melville, Volker Schlöndorff), actors (Jane Fonda, Isabelle Huppert, Jane Birkin), cinematographers (Tonino Delli Colli), film distributors (Searching for Mr. Rugoff) – and the peculiar case of one of Hitler’s most trusted men, Albert Speer, who had the most curious stint in motion pictures, as told in Speer Goes to Hollywood.
