Alberto Gemmi (Italy)

Alberto Gemmi (Italy, 1984). After his studies at the Helsinki Faculty of Arts and a Master Degree in Cinema at the University of Bologna, he is awarded a Master in Filmmaking in Paris. His works focus on the research of archival materials for the creation of short film-diaries, reflecting on the idea of time and memory. Through a special language close to the visual anthropology, using the documentary gaze he also focalizes on urban mutations or complex issues of society. Go Burning Atacama Go (2012) won the experimental Lucca Film Festival award, whilst Sinai – another step on earth (2014) had its national premiere at the Torino Film Festival. His first feature documentary Ogni Opera di Confessione (2015) had its world premiere at Visions du Réel. Together with musicians and performers he has curated in Italy and abroad: video-installations, sound performances, live theatre exhibitions and workshops on cinema. Since 2013 he works at the film restoration laboratory L’Immagine Ritrovata, part of the Cineteca di Bologna.
