Wertmüller won an apprenticeship on Fellini’s seminal portrait of creative crisis, helping the maestro cast extras (including her own mother) but she didn’t stay an assistant long: the same year Fellini helped her secure financing and and the services of cinematographer Gianni Di Venanzo to shoot The Lizards.

In Italian with English subtitles.
