Francesco Amato

Type: 
Director, documentary and screenwriter, begins working behind the camera in Bologna, as a student of the Dams, where he makes shorts and documentaries including Figlio di Penna (winner of the Torino Film Festival, Visioni Italiane, in Cannes in 2002). In 2006 he graduated from the Experimental Center of Cinematography in Rome and started off with the feature film Ma che ci faccio qui! : a diploma film produced by CSC together with RaiCinema and distributed by Istituto Luce. Screened in more than 20 countries, the film receive many awards, and is nominated for David Donatello and Globi d’oro as the best work ever before. In 2011 he realized Cosimo and Nicole, produced by Cattley, who won "Prospettive Italia" at the Rome Film Festival 2012, and other awards in Italy and abroad. Played by Riccardo Scamarcio and Clara Ponsot, the film sees the extraordinary participation of bands such Afterhours, Marlene Kuntz, Verdena and Bud Spencer Blues Explosion in the concert scenes. The funny moments in Ma che ci faccio qui! leave here the passage to the deep questions about contemporaryity, the problems of a precarious generation, as immigration and black labor. After this experience he returns to the world of documentaries, pointing the camera on three projects on food in Africa: co-directed by Stefano Scarafia, works on Harenna Wild Forest Coffee (2013, Ethiopia), Pokot Ash Yogurt (2013, Kenya) and Couscous Island (2014, Senegal). The production is cured by Slow Food, the last two are screened at the Berlin Film Festival (respectively in the 2013 and 2014 editions).
