CALIGULA Documentary and Press Event
Caligula Director: Tinto Brass
Documentary Director: Alexander Tuschinski
In 1979, a power struggle erupted between Gore Vidal (writer), Tinto Brass (director), and Bob Guccione (producer) over which vision would rule the film they were making.
Gore Vidal left, and Tinto Brass was locked out of his editing room, as Bob Guccione (publisher of Penthouse Magazine) decided he could act as director, producer, and editor. His deeply flawed version (with sex scenes of Penthouse Pets added for no reason), edited by a novice, with no input from the director who shot the footage, …is now all the world knows of this legendary project.
Malcolm McDowell, Peter O'Toole, John Gielgud, Helen Mirren, (who joined from a desire to work with Tinto Brass), are all embarrassed by the finished film (and will not speak of it to this day).
Yet, could there be …an innovative masterpiece hidden in those old reels?
Filmmaker Alexander Tuschinski (scholar of the 1960's art house films of Tinto Brass) had idea of restoring and releasing Tinto's version of Caligula into the world, to be viewed it as the director intended.
After teaming up with Kelly Holland (new owner and operator of Penthouse Global Media), this unlikely pair, now armed with Tinto's original work print, shooting script, and blessing, …is on a mission to recreate this lost masterpiece.
Kelly and Alexander are bringing a traveling roadshow press event, with scenes from this Tinto Brass Cut of Caligula (that show how radically different this version is), and a documentary that chronicles the journey that got them here.
