Direction’s sketch:

Debora got the Classical School-Leaving Certificate and took up Humanities studies at the University of Palermo. In 1998 she moved in London where she developed a strong passion for visual arts and she enriched her studies with a particular interest for documentary representation techniques.

In the last three years of her studies, Debora had the opportunity to study and specialize her interests in cinema direction thanks to the production of many shorts made in England and Italy. Her last short, IsolaNuda, produced with the Cultural Association “ Visionaria” was previewed at the National Film Theatre of London in June 2007. Debora is currently writing the script of her first full length feature.
