Only a few months after the announcement of a brand new documentary concerning the controversial Italian film Cannibal Holocaust, (more information can be found here), we have learned of a new forthcoming documentary celebrating the film work of Cannibal Holocaust director Ruggero Deodato!
The Italian born Deodato has been a staple in the film world for well over five decades, beginning as an assistant director to greats like Roberto Russellini and Sergio Corbucci on spaghetti Westerns like the 1966 Django. His solo directorial debut was in 1968 with Phenomenal and the Treasure of Tutankhamen. The forthcoming documentary sets to give a sweeping account the iconic director’s filmography, as well as providing some autobiographical detail.
As of this writing there has not been a release date announced, but we do have a fun poster and accompanying trailer to get excited about.
