Simone  Rapisarda Casanova

Simone Rapisarda Casanova


To make sense of the world that surrounds us we tell stories, even if we know that they are ephemeral as our lives. My film tells a simple story where the viewer is invited to seek out the narrative threads running between past and present and in thus doing so partake in an ephemeral creation of meaning.    


Simone Rapisarda Casanova was born in rural Sicily and inherited his first camera as a child when his father died in a car accident. Raised by a mother that taught him how to read on Italo Calvino’s "The Baron in the Trees", he dreams to go live one day on a tree to make a film on his anarchist cat. He currently lives in Montreal, Canada.
