Biography

After completing a degree in film studies at Rome university, Chiara Caterina, born in southerin Italy in 1983, was awarded a diploma in cinematography and is currently enrolled at Le Fresnoy-Studio national des arts contemporains in Lille. Her short film AVANT LA NUIT was awarded with the first prize at the Festival Cinema Zero 2013 in Trento (Italy), with the first prize in the experimental section of A corto di donne Festival in Naples (Italy) and selected among others at the 27 European Media Art Festival in Osnabrueck, at the 30th Hamburg International Short Film Festival, at the 10th Berwick Film and Media Art Festival and at the Videoformes 2015 International Festival in Clermont-Ferrand. Her video practice undertakes a reflection on the language of on fictio film, o the borders often blurred and slippery between staging and reality and on the role of the author in the subtle process. Her main interest is how we define truth in nonfiction cinema, how it becomes meaningful to shift the ethnographic focus from the phenomena themselves to the practices of interaction between observer and observed. Her most recent film THE WORLD OR NOTHING competed at the Brive European Medium-Length Film Meetings.
