debora vrizzi As a visual artist Debora Vrizzi is following two parallel lines: to use her own body as the main subject for her cinematographic art like real mise en scéne and, at the same time, to stress the ambiguity between reality and fiction. Vrizzi improved her personal artistic research focusing on cinema and visual art. 
In 2007 she graduated at Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia (CSC /SNC) in Rome.
She worked as director of photography on several short movies and documentaries displayed in the Venice Film Festival, Locarno International Film Festival and Berlinale. She was awarded as best director of photography at Capalbio Cinema International in 2008 and International Arcipelago Festival of Rome in 2010.

On Air: Debora Vrizzi

The ikono On Air Festival is showing Debora Vrizzi's film Submergency from 2007: "We are always a bit scared when we prepared ourselves to the big jump. But we are also excited and impatient. In a permanent apnea, we often clash with reality in which we risk to be trapped in. Submergency is a rescue call. We breath to understand how it’s difficult to change our state of mind."
