Mauro Santini

*1965, Fano, Italy. Lives and works in Pesaro, Italy.

After having completed his studies Mauro Santini worked with graphic arts and photography. He has been making videos since 1993. His most recent work involves personal travel logs, without scripts, of voyages to interior dimensions linked to memory and the search for oneself. The viewer is the protaganist as the eye captures visions and souvenirs.

His videos have been shown at a number of international festivals (Locarno, Oberhausen, Montpellier, Rencontres Paris/Berlin, Jeonju etc…). With Da lontano, he took home the grand prize of the 2002 Torino Film Festival – Spazio Italia.

Santini Da qui sopra il mare

Da qui, sopra il mare / Italy / 2003 / 10' / 4:3

Behind a dark window, the childhood home, time is rediscovered. A woman runs into the sunny air ... it is a blast, a color, a reflection of water ... By the sea, one encounters people and things lost.
