I'm Viola Folador, class '93 for everybody just ‘vi’.
I am a film director and writer, currently based in Milano.
I tell my point of view with images mixing narrative and aesthetics, vintage with modern and bread with chocolate.
Tiptoeing I barely reach one meter and sixty.
I love coffee, books, cactus, cinema and writing and as a child, born and raised in a small village in Valcuvia, I was influenced by Edgar Allan Poe’s books and Tim Burton’s movies.
All that is strange, intricate, lonely and decadent fascinates me.
After studying languages and film directing I improved my skills on many different sets, working as assistant director, assistant production, sometimes videomaker and finally film director.
Until now, I have written and directed 4 shortfilms, various fashion film and some commercials.
For music video I work in a duo with the director Fabio Landi under the pseudonym of Luther Blissett
I won 3 awards as "best director", 8 as "best shortfilm" and 2 as "best screenwriter".
