CREW

alessandro leonardi

Director

Over the last fifteen years I have made films about the people I was living amongst in Montreal and New York. 

When I moved to London I made friends with a guy who was shooting combat videos. One a week. 

I wrote a story for his crew about a fighter with Shakespearean aspirations who leads a mutiny against their producer. 

One day there was a stuntwoman on set and that was that. It all came Down to One.

I was born in Milan, Italy, in 1989.

I have been playing with cameras since a very early age. Still now filming is a way for me to explore the world with the same childish curiosity. Moving from the wide picture of my Philosophy studies, I like zooming in on the smallest details of life. The MA in Documentary practice (Brunel University, London) trained me to tell real stories of real characters, although I often make use of fiction techniques. Filming has always been crucial to me in order to interact with the world. But when I frame it, reality always escapes the lens. What remains, is my limited point of view and the need to look from a different angle. Hence, I try again and again. That makes me a perfectionist, I guess. My camera is the best tool I own to push the boundaries of imagery and see what our naked eye can’t see or our habits keep us from exploring.
