Vittorio Moroni

Filmmaker and Screenwriter

In the deep end of love and immigration

The Italian artist has directed four feature films: two documentary and two fiction movies. The former were Licu’s Holidays (2007), Eve and Adam (2009), while the latter were You Must Be the Wolf (2006) and If I Close My Eyes I Am Not Here (2015). He has delved with a plethora of controversial and emotional subjects in his films, including the relation between Italian society and Asian immigrants, and whether loving someone is a choice. His next goal is to find a way to combine these two experiences, making a fiction movie with the freedom of a documentary.

He is also a screenwriter for other filmmakers, including Terraferma by Emanuele Crialese (2011). He staged some plays in Italy, such as “The Third Life” (2011), about a Moroccan immigrant suffering deep changes as a woman, wife and widow.

Moroni is a taboo-breaking artist. In Eve and Adam he followed a couple for more than seven years in order to understand love and dedication when a degenerative disease hit their marriage. His distribution tactics are also very creative: he advertises films at indie screenings in person, and pre-sells tickets before committing the release date. Like many independent productions, his films tend to have very open ends.
