We are excited about our double feature presentation from director Alexo Wandael, which includes To my Pink Lady and Tomato Soup in Skid Row. The films will be followed by a recorded Q&A with Fabio Finotti, previous director of the Italian Cultural Institute, along with writer and actress Cristina Rambaldi, editor Daniela Ovi, producer Pete White and director Alexo Wandael.


To My Pink Lady

runtime: 13 minutes 
Life does not always go as we may have planned or dreamed. But sometimes, the human spirit will push back and challenge life's limitations. With a photograph created for her best friend Dakota, Cristina finds a way for their bond to transcend time and to be able to "grow old" together.

 

Tomato Soup in Skid Row

runtime: 48 minutes 
Homelessness showcases itself in all its harshness and stridence on so many city's streets, screaming for some acknowledgement and understanding. And yet, for most of us, those souls remain mute, distant, like a collection of lost shadows filling the spaces we simply drive by in the safety of our cars...

 

Both Titles Directed by Alexo Wandael 
Films are in English (cc/subtitles available)

ALEXO WANDAEL

Alexo Wandael is an Italian Award winner director and photographer based in Los Angeles and New York.
Born and raised in Bolzano, Italy he studied Architecture before moving to Berlin and New York where he practiced for 11 years.

Eventually he followed his passion for photography and became a fashion and fine art photographer in New York receiving Awards and accolades from both the fashion and art world.
His work has been included in solo and group shows around the globe and is also part of the permanent collection of the FIT Museum in NY.

In 2012 he was in Afghanistan with the Italian Army to document the tragic jailing of Afghan women and children, and the training of Afghan women to become soldiers.
Drawn to narrative, he published two photography books documenting his motorcycle road trips across America between 2013-2016.

In 2014 he started his ongoing project italiany.us portraying and interviewing first generation Italians living, loving and working in the US. The project was shown in NY, Miami (Art Basel) and Los Angeles.
Ultimately he moved to LA where he created LANYMA films (movies with a soul) producing in 2019 his first Awards winner short film “To my Pink Lady”.

The first long feature “Tomato Soup in Skid Row”, LA 2021, explores the social and racial issue of homelessness and was inspired by his photo essay of Skid Row in 2016.
Wandael's aesthetics and visual story telling extended to the direction of music videos and commercials. His clientele include Versace, Vivienne Westwood, Bulgari, Nike, Hermes, Amazon, celebrities like Katy Perry, KT Tunstall, Oleg Cassini, Patch Adams and many other personalities within the Fashion and Arts communities.
