"La Pastora", a short documentary film that I shot and co-directed with the american filmmaker David Sampliner, premiered last summer at the Middlebury New Filmmakers Festival, in the section "Poetic". 

"La Pastora" is a sort of "spin-off" of my photographic project "School of Shepherds"... and I cannot be more happy for this new step.

Very grateful to David for counting with me on this, and to all the team: Rachel Schuman, the editor, Todd Griffin the composer, Evan Anthony the colorist, Thomas Ryan the sound mixer, and Joy Reed the titles/graphics wiz.

More news to come soon!
