About author

Manuel Maria Perrone

Manuel Maria Perrone trained in theater in the new Argentine scene of the early 2000s, a path that led him to become interested in the language of cinema. Author of theater, cinema, poetry, he writes short stories and tries his hand at his first novel "La deroga". In 2010, he moved to France where he developed ambitious projects at the border of theater and cinema, often with tramps, ex-convicts and people with mental illnesses. His works have been presented in major festivals (Cannes Fortnight, Locarno, Guanajuato, Los Angeles, Clermont Ferrand) or on television (Canal Plus, SSR). He received the Unesco prize of the city of Trieste for his poem Ho camminato nel giardino dei vecchi and his play Agonia di un Angelo is a finalist for the Oltreparola prize, adapted with his direction in Syndrome de Jérusalem, presented in Paris in November 2021. He is currently working on the feature film The Last Supper, a gynecology of old actresses, in a Swiss convent, with famous characters who have marked the history of cinema.
