Educated as a film historian and worked as a film archivist early on, later I proceeded to develop my interest in cinema through analog photography and culture studies. For a couple of years, I’ve been working with the topics of memory, history, archive, film aesthetics, and gestures, mainly in the context of the 60s, that’s why I am using analog techniques and make some experiments with archive materials by combining my texts about film history with found archive.  Since I moved to Italy and had a painful emigration experience I am exploring migration and adaptation topics by making experimental videos and photographic performances.
