14 Oct That’s a wrap! End of the shooting for my Chinese feature ‘The Soprano from the Silk Road’
After 900 days, 9 international theatres, 12 cities and 81 scenes made, the shooting of my Chinese film – co-directed with the untarnished Andrea Prandstraller – The Soprano from the Silk Road is over. It has been an incredibly enriching experience, thanks to the many people from many different cultures collaborating in the production. Above all, I want to thank the wonderful Hui He, a great artist and a beautiful human being as well. Now a great friend also. We’ve shared the dream of bringing her amazing story to the big screen, and we almost made it, dear Hui. We’re on the right path, ready for the post-production that will be made in China in 2017.
It will be a weird movie made of animation, reenacted scenes, documentary and videoclips.
A kaleidoscopic combination such as the cultural globalization that we’re about to depict. The positive germination of a seed that has traveled 10,000 km.

It is an Italian-Chinese co-production, supported by the Italian culture ministry MIBAC and the Chinese province of Shaanxi. It will be theatrically release on late 2017.
