About this submission
"Muro", which in Italian means wall, is a silent stop-motion short film about a selfish man who lives alone on his land and whose sole interest is looking after his precious fruit tree. However, when a hungry stranger keeps coming back asking for food, he decides to build a big wall to keep him out but his actions will slowly turn against him.

I am an Italian and American Writer and Director. I graduated Summa Cum Laude in Film Studies from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” with a thesis that analyzed the cinematographic language through the works and legacies of Fellini, Epstein and Sternberg. In 2016 I graduated Summa Cum Laude from the City College of New York with an MFA in Media Arts Production focused on Writing and Directing for Fiction. I was the recipient of the Bert Saperstein Communication Scholarship for scholastic merit and my thesis project, a sci-fi short film entitled “Astral Migrant” was selected as a Student Academy Awards Semi-Finalist and screened at several international film festivals. I am currently making a stop-motion short film and writing my first feature length script.
