Vittorio D

Showing today at the Venice Film Festival: Vittorio D, directed by Mario Canale & Annarosa Morri

Synopsis from a related IndieWire article:

Seventy years after his first film (Red Roses, 1939) and 35 after his death, Vittorio De Sica remains a celebrated, forgotten and perhaps unknown giant of Italian cinema. His irrepressible humanity, versatility as an actor and intransigence as a filmmaker remain in the shadows. This original and different portrait is created through stories from De Sica’s children — Emy, Christian and Manuel — alongside artists such as Woody Allen, Clint Eastwood, John Landis, Ken Loach and Mario Monicelli.
