A Special Conversation with Bernardo Bertolucci

The films of Bernardo Bertolucci constitute one of the most exhilarating and substantive bodies of work in cinema history. Once an assistant director to Pier Paolo Pasolini as well as a renowned poet, Bertolucci creates work as diverse as it is distinctive. From Before the Revolution, The Conformist, and Last Tango in Paris to The Last Emperor and Stealing Beauty, his films are the very essence of visual expression. His newest film, The Dreamers, concerns the unfolding psychological and sexual relationship among three young adults in 1968 Paris.
