Director Biography - Alessandro Leonardi

I was born in Milan, Italy, in 1989.
I have been playing with cameras since a very early age. Filming remains a way to explore the world with the same childish curiosity.

My camera is the best artifact I own with which to push the boundaries of imagery and see what our naked eye misses.

Director Statement

A Show for Myself drew a fine line between our script and the lives of our cast and crew. A fair measure of control was called upon in order to direct a drama rather than to record a documentary.
