Natalia Dionysiotis

Natalia Dionysiotis is 22 years old and was born in Athens. She is an undergraduate
student at the Department of Communication and Mass Media of the National and
Kapodistrian University of Athens. At the final years of her secondary education she
participated in the teen section of the National Theater. She completed an internship
at the Greek Film Archive in relation to archiving cinematographic material,
organizing events on art and culture and performing public relations. The systematic
study of specific directors, such as Nikos Nikolaidis, Pedro Almodovar and Guillermo
Del Toro, due to the development of academic work brought her closer to the need
for perceiving and observing individual directors’ choices regarding filming, editing,
sound and picture. The first contact with camera operation and video editing came
up as part of the “TV and Radio Production” and the “Fiction and Documentary Film
Production” seminars. This course led to the creation of “Kiki project” through group
observation of the drag persona, Holly Grace.
