REALITY - Life behind a movie (2012) 

'Reality'(ITA/FRA 2012),  by award winning director Matteo Garrone (Gomorrah, The Tale of Tales) won Grand Prix at Cannes film Festival in 2012 and obtained a wide success over box offices.
Most of its actors are taken from real life with private stories deeply influencing the path of the movie.
The highly experimental way of working of Matteo Garrone, convinced us to approach set photography as a pure Reportage. 
Aniello Arena, who acts as main charachter, is a former mafia killer currently serving a life sentence in Jail.
He came with daily permission on set while every night he got back to prison.
A photographic essay that stays in-between cinema and real life
