Paolo Taviani, Wondrous Boccaccio



Italy’s Taviani brothers, Vittorio and Paolo, have been titans of world cinema since the 1970s with masterworks like Padre Padrone, Night of the Shooting Stars, and 2012's Caesar Must Die. Premiering the 14th century-set Wondrous Boccaccio at the Tribeca Film Festival, Paolo, 83, talks of the film’s 30 year gestation, how he wants to be making movies at 107, and when he and his sibling realized their lives would be entwined personally and professionally for life.
