Director Biography – Francesca Malinverno (ORO)

“To do things right,
first you need love,
then technique.”
Antoni Gaudì

I started my education at Liceo Artistico Sperimentale at Istituto Sacro Cuore in Milan, where I nurtured a deep passion for painting and cinema. Afterwards, I got an Interior Design Bachelor in July 2013 at Politecnico of Milan. In September, I was admitted into the Civica Scuola of Cinema Luchino Visconti, where I graduated in 2016. My specialisation is film directing.
Throughout these years I’ve been working as assistant director, filmmaker and photographer for some video productions such as Sky TV Italia, 3zero2 TV, Areastream S.r.l., Renzo Cerbo Studios and Civica Scuola of Theatre Paolo Grassi.
Over the years, I have also been trained for acting coach by Italian director Marina Spada, who taught me during my academic years.
My artistic path is largely inspired by British television, cinema and theatre.

Director Statement

The lockdown period was – and still is – very stressful on many levels. At a certain point, I decided to put all of my energies and emotions into a project. I live with my family in a house with a garden around it and as soon as we were all locked down, I started to develop a certain interest into gardening. I discovered that beauty needs caring in order to make it grow. I saw beauty in nature. So, I grabbed my camera and began filming.
Day by day, with the precious help of my dear father, I filmed bits of my work and, eventually, I ended up with having a good deal of video material. I edited it and, with the help of some of my friends, I created “ORO” ( from Latin “I pray”).
