Tornistan / Backward Run

This originally hand drawn (No video replication) animated short film was urgently completed in 18 days (after the Gezi Park protests which was happened in Turkey between May-June 2013) for the national and the international media and for the film festivals.

This film is dedicated to all those:
People who were exposed to disproportionate police force,
People who have been wounded,
People who lost their eyes because of wrong usage of gas bombs,
People who have been killed.

Una questione privata (Vita di Beppe Fenoglio )

Un documentario di Guido Chiesa (1996), per Rai 3. Sullo sfondo di un’Alba provinciale e conservatrice, i racconti di chi ha conosciuto Beppe Fenoglio (10 mesi di lavoro e quasi 200 interviste curate da Piero Negri, Gianpiero Vico e Massimo Bergadano del Circolo Fenoglio ’96) permettono di ricostruirne la personalità, le difficoltà esistenziali e le passioni; il rapporto con la famiglia, le donne e la città che non ha mai abbandonato; l’esperienza militare e partigiana; l’impegno civile dopo la guerra; il laboratorio letterario; i legami con gli altri intellettuali; fino alla malattia e la morte nel 1963.

The Wake Up Call

It was almost one year ago when I decided to document the ever increasing politicized street art in Athens. One could not miss the colored messages that were filling our daily strolls in the Greek capital’s center. Urban works of art that were getting erased and drawn over again and again, inspired not only by political the developments in Greece but also the need to criticize ourselves and our political system. A need that essentially intended to make the Greek society more self-aware of what is going on, to wake up.

The Migrant Manifesto

“We have been called many names, illegals, aliens, guest workers, border crossers, undesirables, exiles, criminals, non-citizens, terrorists, thieves, foreigners, invaders, undocumented, our voices converge on these principles. We know that
international connectivity is the reality that migrants have helped create. It is the place where we all reside.”
(The Migrant Manifesto)
