Dionisio knows how to tell stories, sometimes using beautiful or stylised narrative, others a more realistic style but always with a very personal, heartfelt and emotional signature “You have to provoke emotions” in addition to aesthetic sensations.
His camera moves are instinctive, making you feel like you are part of the scene. Storytelling and directing actors are some of his main skills. Whether its about portraying histrionic humor or dealing with a much more subtle or absurd one.
HARRY is his most personal project and it feeds from his philosophy, AKITA is proud to represent this great director for the Italian market.
