“The reason that SELFIE makes such an impression, however, is that it doesn’t only focus on all the bad or hopeless things that surround the boys. Their smartphones are also there for their silliness, their mischief, their boredom and their genuine acts of friendship.” (www.hollywoodreporter.com)
Agostino Ferrente is a director, producer and artistic director. Before becoming involved in cinema, he was an editorial coordinator for magazines and news programs. After gaining a degree in the DAMS in Bologna/Italy he directed short films and music videos. In 2001, he co-founded the group “Apollo 11” in Rome, which saved the historical Apollo cinema theatre and turned it into one of the liveliest cultural centres in Italy’s capital. He is currently working on his first non-documentary feature film.
