In November 2016 I was interviewed by curator and writer Aniko Erdosi from the online magazine Sculpture and Nature
about my short film Il Grande Cretto di Gibellina
, (commissioned by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation) which was screened in the Guggenheim Museum in New York from October 8th 2015 till January the 6th of 2016. The interview is online now
In the meanwhile I am working on a new short film (supported by the Creative Industries Fund) about the neighborhood Eva Lanxmeer in Culemborg. Eva Lanxmeer is the name of an ecological residential and business area built from 1994 to 2009 in the Dutch town of Culemborg in the Netherlands. The Dutch poet, writer and actor Ramsey Nasr is writing the voice-over for this film.
