Dario Albertini, (Roma, 1974). A director, a musician and a photographer, is the historical collaborator of the musical group Tiromancino. He directed various videoclips and he was awarded as an independent documentary maker. He is an intense and many faceted artist, particularly interested in disadvantaged suburban areas. Since 2011 he has directed many shorts and documentaries such as L’Abbandono non e’ lontano, Voce alta nella SLOT, Incontri al mercato and in 2017 his Claudio in arte Claude is released together with his first long feature film Manuel. This film was presented at the 74th Venice International Film Festival.

Manuel (Andrea Lattanzi), an eighteen year old boy is coming out of an institution for minors without family support and for the first time he experiences the exciting sense of freedom. His mother (Francesca Antonelli) is in prison. She wishes she could go back in time and start over again. It is a movie about human regrets, hopes and small cowardice. It is also a story of people waiting for something while one’s soul turns around in emptiness. It is a coming-of-age story in a desolate and oppressive suburb environment. This environment  becomes the actual issue of the story.
