Director Biography - Daniele Giammarino

Since I was young, I have always had a keen interest in movies, I just love watching movies. Over the years, I got more and more intrigued with the whole movie making process and filmmakers Alfred Hitchcock and Kim Ki Duk were people I looked up to. I don't like to define myself, I just love what I do: playing with images, creating stories.
