In a time of fear, I am reminded that uncertainty can make life hard but also beautiful. Here's "The Forest of Life", my latest short film which I shot in June 2019. Hope you enjoy it :)
When the Paulist Fathers, a NYC-based nonprofit, asked me to write a short film about interreligious dialogue, I found inspiration in the city I live in: New York, a place where - despite our differences - we are all in this together. Here's 'The Laundromat'.
Update: almost 200,000 Faceook views - grateful to all of you!
NEW YORK BECOMES NAPLES AT THIS RESTAURANT
The dough has been just made, the ingredients are fresh and healthy, a warm 'Buongiorno' from the owner will welcome you at this hidden gem in Soho, considered one of the most authentic Italian restaurants in town. At 'Song o Napule" (literally 'I am from Naples' in Neapolitan), New York becomes Naples.

"Emanuele has an intuitive sense of what to film, of visually appealing angles, and how to edit everything together to effectively tell stories. I love the footage he captured, & I’m really happy with the final product. If you're looking to create a video to showcase what you do or represent your brand, I’d definitely recommend a collaboration with Emanuele."
