About Alessandro

Born and raised in a small town in the Italian Alps, Alessandro studied at the University of Bologna’s Drama, Art and Music Studies (DAMS) program—the first Italian degree to focus entirely on visual arts and performance. In Bologna, he directed his first short film Dog from Hell, which was produced by Universal Studios and broadcast nationally. A year later, he attended U.C. Santa Barbara as an exchange student, where he wrote his final thesis on the Santa Barbara International Film Festival. In 2004, he moved to Dublin, Ireland and became a Final Cut Pro certified trainer. There he managed an Apple Training Center, while teaching film editing at other institutions, such as NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts and Filmbase. He also co-founded the production company Cacti Films, serving as creative director. It was during this time that Alessandro developed a relationship with documentary filmmaking as a means of questioning, challenging and bringing awareness to subjects of social relevance. In 2008, he directed Children of Manila and The Cemetery People, short documentaries that depict the hardships of life on the streets, and how shelter and education can help. Both films won numerous national and international film festival awards, and were featured at various events around the globe. Since 2011, he has resided in Mexico City, where he works as a director and editor.
