I was born in Southern Italy in 1978. After studying in my home town I moved brafly to Bologna and then Zurich where I stayed for 9 years working as director of photography and director of music videos. I lived in Cape Town, South Africa in 2006 to study English and Documentary Film-making at the Thupelo Institute in Woodstock, living and studying in one of the city’s most dangerous neighbourhoods where the making of documentaries fits directly into the events related to the surrounding reality. I’m the founder of Ferula Film, the company with which I produce the majority of my works. Xolo is my first feature length film produced under the Ferula Film banner. Presented at the Black Star Film Festival, it won the prize for best actress and was part of the Orizzonti section of the BiF&ST 2018 and at the 40th Villerupt Festival in France. With in joint production with Rai Cinema I produced and directed ‘Senza Tempo’, a documentary feature that premiered at the 68th Trento Film Festival. In August 2019, I wrote and shot a documentary on Leos Carax’s latest film, ‘Annette’ working between Bruxelles and Paris. I live in Puglia and I freelance as director and cinematographer. I’m currently producing and prepping a documentary to be shot in Cyprus.
