Sergio CANNETO (Italy) studied cinema as autodidact during his law studies at the University. In 2005, he participated in workshops by Bruno Dumont and Eyal Sivian. A year later, he started a course at the Film School in Milan. Canneto's development as a filmmaker began by studying the actor; afterwards he focussed on frame composition. He considers his medium-length film On the 5th April I’ll Kill Myself (2014) the first stage of his career as a director.
