Add Director Biography
Director Statement

Gomorrah, my second film has been by far one of the most difficult projects I have ever undertaken. It’s a very personal film to me and a character study into exaggerated depths of narcissism and addiction.

Inspired by the dreamy visual romance of Wong Kar Wai and the visceral ugliness of Gaspar Noe, I wanted to create a story about the worst person you could meet and to make you like them. To lay them bare before an audience and demonstrate the damage of indulgent self-pity.

I wrote this film at a very difficult time in my life. As such the script was a product of some very intense, very volatile emotions. It’s only now, watching the finished cut and reflecting that I’ve begun to process much of what I was writing.

It’s been very cathartic, I’ve found a lot of peace.
