Il Teatro di Passolini
The dissertation explores Passsolini’s first love: the theatre. His last play, “Calderon”, based in a sixteen century Spanish poem, “Life is a Dream” by Calderon de la Barca staged by Luca Roconi. The theatrical production was then filmed by the Hungarian director Miklos Jancsó.
The dissertation examines the several adaptations of the original text (a poem), into performing and visual text.

I am interested in critical and theoretical approaches to film practices, focusing on diverse genres and modes of production of filmmaking. Discourses around representation, narrative, nationality and identity in both mainstream cinema and independent cinema. Empowering film discourse through the observation and knowledge of film practice.
I was the recipient of the 2013 Teaching Award by University of the Arts London for the design of a project helping new students to develop presentation skills.
I have been involved in many aspects of film and television production having worked for over 20 years in the independent sector of the British film industry. My work has involved documentary research, camera operation, editing and directing, as well as developing and making my own films. I have combined film lecturing with my own film practice.
