Javier is back in his hometown of Buenos Aires, torn between the needs of his mentally-ill mother and the life he’s built in Europe.
His passion for film drove Franco Volpi to move to Spain, where he studied at Escuela de cine Ciudad de la Luz, under acclaimed director Pablo Berger (Torremolinos 73, Snow White, Abracadabra). He then moved to the U.K. to complete an MA in Filmmaking at London Film School, chaired by director Mike Leigh. There, Volpi has worked as a Writer, Director, Editor and in the Camera, Lighting and Sound Department on numerous short film and documentary projects, digitally, on 16mm and 35mm film. He graduated with Distinction in May 2018.
