DIRECTOR BIOGRAPHICAL NOTE:
Paolo Ferrarini, born in Verona (city of straight love and gay hatred) is mostly active as a linguist and a musician. Now mainly based in London, he still spends a lot of his life on the road, in search of inspiration for his work from world cultures and languages. He publicly starts his music career with a theatrical-philosophical musical in 2006,
showcasing some of his original songs that will eventually find their way into his first album, Paradigmi Gnoseologici, published in 2008. The atheist and gay themes that amongst other things permeate his artistic vision emerge in his first videoclip, Gravità, the story of a gay priest’s erotic dream, screened and acclaimed at several international film festivals. Two subsequent videoclips, Sandanski and Decadent Muse, consolidate the author’s “trans-genre paradigm” of turning videoclips into actual short-films that use a song as a soundtrack, in the latter case even giving a different title to the clip that accompany a song. He is currently working at his second album and has new shorts in the pipeline, as he gradually shifts more and more towards the art of cinema.
