Rocket girl

A film still from "The Rocket Girl", i.e. a maybe coming soon short film adapted from a short story from the serie "The Illustrated Girl" by Ray Bradbury?
One way or another, many would consider her to have extremely high ROCKITUDE.

Inner child

I have a direct connection with my inner child, I never betray it, on the contrary, I give it sap and nourishment so that it may be strengthened. A radical inner child, who became radical chic in the most stylish and at the same time genuine way, and then overcome itself without the danger of losing itself to develop into a radical champion with the aplomb like a member of a secret society, the elegance of a Vogue or even more a Casabella editor, the complexity of thinking like an American ghostwriter, gifted with sharpened wits like one who feels elective affinities in regards of Umberto Eco.

Urban spirit

Art-Nouveau ft. Mannerism + a hint of Vienna Secession
Berri-Meregalli Palace by Giulio Ulisse Arata in the background of via Cappuccini, in the Quadrilateral of Silence, downtown in Milan, Risorgimento area. Inside in the entryway, the Vittoria Alata, the winged victory by Adolfo Wildt - back in times when that name was still decent.
A tribute to the Iñárritu's Birdman by a Birdgirl, simultaneously thinking about Scott's Blade Runner and its soundtrack by Vangelis.

De Stjil Dame

I am fond of the Dutch Neoplasticism also called De Stijl, their members sought something beyond the appearance of things. I came upon this artistic movement that aimed to convey the immutable nature of things, the immutable core of reality thanks to the namesake album of The White Stripes.

Mercurial reader

Furiously reading Fury by Salman Rushdie I felt like one of the puppets in the puppet house built by Mr. Solanka, lost therein not in Manhattan but in an epicenter of old days, Venice.
“Life is fury. Fury–sexual, Oedipal, political, magical, brutal–drives us to our finest heights and coarsest depths.”

My Way

My way: via Macedonio Melloni in Milan, the street I was born in. Beyond the meeting point of the perspective is in fact located the Macedonio Melloni Hospital.

Captivating captive

In 1298, in the aftermath of the Battle of Curzola, a major setback for Venice and a victory for Genoa, it has been reported that an illustrious prisoner was taken, Marco Polo. Allegedly, the notable traveler wrote in the impasse of being held in the gaol of Saint George Palace,The Million, i.e. The Book of the Marvels of the World.
Albeit I hope not to sound pretentious or worse vainglorious in comparing my lot in Genoa with Polo's, I feel the same to be a prisoner of this city. I behave as a prisoner, almost a recluse, but I am doing a lot, producing things that I want to see existent, products of myself.

Sara Ferro, born on May 11, 1977 in Milan, is an award-winning Italian filmmaker who produces international works all around Europe. In 2008 she graduated as M.A. in Sociology of Media & Communication, writing her thesis "Per una sociologia della nostalgia. Il caso della ex-DDR". Since then she has lived in Milan, Berlin, London, Venice, Munich, Turin, Genoa studying and working on different types of projects in different kind of fields. From fashion, art, literature, book antiquary to cinema. Her curiosity on cultures and the structures behind them took her on a great journey across many places and different cultures, learning not only their traditions but also the language of the country as it is the bridge to the social mind of the community. Actually she speaks and writes fluently Italian, German, English and is learning French. The results of this passion are many multilingual works in form of literary translations, international feature documentary film productions and last but not least the organization of different international film festivals in her role as director and programmer. After her career in several companies across Italy, England and Germany, among them well-known brands of diverse industries, she decided to start her own business and founded in 2015 together with her partner Chris Weil the media house Artoldo most known for its feature documentaries but also an uprising in arthouse films, video art, expanded cinema installations, and exhibitions. Her focus lies not only on the academical exploration of cultural heritage and approaching it artistically but also in its adaptation, remixing and creation of intellectual collages developing her own style. Besides the realization of multimedia and audiovisual projects she acts also as a performer in her fictional role known as Wundersaar playing different characters in experimental short movies and avant-garde films.
