Alberto Gemmi (Italy, 1984). After his studies at the Helsinki Faculty of Arts and a Master Degree in Cinema at the University of Bologna, he is awarded a Master in Filmmaking in Paris. His works focus on the research of archival materials for the creation of short film-diaries, reflecting on the idea of time and memory. Through a special language close to the visual anthropology, using the documentary gaze he also focalizes on urban mutations or complex issues of society.

His first feature documentary Ogni Opera di Confessione (2015) had its world premiere at Visions du Réel.
