Roman Polanski: My Inspirations

The flexible, multi-functional spaces of the Cinema  at the Fondazione Prada host ‘Roman Polanski: My Inspirations’, a 2015 documentary interview by Laurent Bouzereau presented for the first time ever to the public on this occasion and accompanied by a selection of films.

In this documentary interview, Roman Polanski discusses his love and passion for the cinema. He starts from the beginning describing his first experiences with film and the different movies that truly inspired him and helped mold him into the director that he has become. The concept of being a spectator of important classics and how it forms the individual creatively is a theme that Polanski emphasizes throughout the documentary.

In addition to the documentary, the program for ‘Roman Polanski: My Inspirations’ includes a series of screenings of the filmmaker’s films, shown together with the movies that inspired them, for example ‘Citizen Kane’ (1941, Orson Welles) with ‘Rosemary’s Baby’ (1968); ‘Odd Man Out’ (1947, Carol Reed) with ‘The Pianist’ (2002) and ‘The Fearless Vampire Killers’ (1967); or ‘8 ½’ (1963, Federico Fellini) together with ‘Cul-de-sac’ (1966).

Admission is free. Booking is required by calling +39 0256662613, every day from noon to 5pm. A maximum of 2 seats per screening can be reserved.
