Alexandra D’Onofrio

Italian and Greek with a foot in England, Alexandra D’Onofrio is a visual anthropologist and a director. In the past few years she has been using documentary filmmaking, animation, theatre and storytelling as collaborative methods of research on the topics of migration. In her social and cultural work on the ground, she applied similar creative methods in order to create social contexts to foster new encounters and the sharing of stories, by co-founding in Milan the Fandema community theatre group, the Italian language school for newcomers Asnada, and the storytelling project on motherhood MAdRI. “It Was Tomorrow” is her last film produced as part of her PhD in “Anthropology, Media and Performance”
