Conformista Ribelle is a docufilm that recounts the decisive moments, the turning points and the roller coaster of a brilliant, eventful international career and the daring existence of a great Italian artist. From his origins as the son of N.N. to the conquest of great international fame as a director, art director, painter, creator of cinema, theater and opera. Through original and vintage interviews with some of the most acclaimed stars who have known, admired and loved him and with family, friends and closest collaborators, this engaging story does justice to the person and the artist – not just“ The Master” – in all its multifaceted and even opposing facets. His dualistic character is manifested in his vast artistic production, but also in his political choices, in his spirituality and love for mystery, in friendships and in the legendary controversies with critical opponents. This clash of opposites will offer a well-rounded portrait, with continuous ups and downs, of an artist who has promoted and honored the highest and most popular Italian culture in the great world capitals for many decades.
