Abel Ferrara Masterclass with Silk Road International Film Festival

Wednesday, December 18th, 2019

Screen Skills Ireland is delighted to support Silk Road International Film Festival as they present a masterclass with acclaimed director Abel Ferrara.

This inspiring masterclass will focus on the director’s work, style & creation of films including working with non actors discussing films to date. It will feature open discussion, allowing for interactive questions & answers, and will be of particular interest to directors, writers, cinematographers, actors, and producers.

Born in the Bronx in 1951, Abel Ferrara started on Super 8 in his teens in upstate New York with writers Nicholas St. John and John McIntyre. His first features were Driller Killer and Ms. 45 in the late 1970s. The 1980s and 1990s led to his cult reputation with legendary films like King of New York, Bad Lieutenant, The Addiction and The Funeral. Ferrara has just completed the principal photography of his next feature Siberia, also starring Willem Dafoe. His upcoming film Tommaso (2019) is an intimate drama about an artist living in Rome with his family and continues his collaboration with Dafoe.
