“I depict a common human world
through the lens of a passionate camera”
I made videos, reportages and creative documentaries in more then 30 countries, recounting the Syrian migration crisis, Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone, the public health issue of asbestos in Brazil and India, women’s condition in Ethiopia and human trafficking in Nigeria.
I work on social and cultural topics. And on music in all its forms.
I’ve been experimenting the expressive tools of filmmaking since I’ve attended at the Cuban film school EICTV in 1999. For the past 18 years I have striven to carry out quality film productions with human interest while offering a fresh glance on powerful social issues.
I won several international awards with the documentary Dust, the great asbestos trial (Polvere, il grande processo dell’amianto), co-directed with Andrea Prandstraller, among these best film in Baghdad and Rio de Janeiro and nominated for the David of Donatello 2012. I got the Ivens Prize at Cinema du Réel, Paris, for Andrea Deaglio’s City Veins, the future flows through here which I’ve produced. My “operamentary” Magicarena has been theatrical released in China, Australia and Taiwan in 2014. In 2015 I’ve completed the Cuban feature Pequeñas mentiras piadosas (The travel agent) on the human consequence of the US-Cuba relations. It won the Unicredit Youth Award at the 1° Milan International Documentary Festival – Visioni dal Mondo.
I’ve been working also as producer, editor, DOP, cameraman and screenplayer for videoclips, ADs, corporative videos and live shows, collaborating with authors like Dee Dee Bridgewater, John Appel, Alice Rohrwacher, La Fura dels Baus, Vinicio Capossela, Gianluca e Massimiliano De Serio, Lorena Luciano and Filippo Piscopo, Gonzalo Rubalcaba, Chucho Valdes and Marlene Kuntz.
My last project as a co-director is the EU-China co-production The soprano from the silk road, a feature lenght movie about music as a bridge between cultures.
