About the filmmaker:
One of arthouse cinema’s true visionaries, Abel Ferrara was born in the Bronx in 1951. Influenced by New York’s immigrants, artists, musicians, cops and drug addicts, he started making Super-8 films as a teenager, and in the late 1970s, he made his first feature films, Driller Killer and Ms. 45. In the 1980s and 1990s, his international successes included King of New York, Bad Lieutenant, The Funeral and The Addiction. His exceptional, controversial career has been celebrated at the Louvre, the Museum of Modern Art, and Venice International Film Festival, where he was awarded the Glory to the Filmmaker Award in 2020.See our upcoming films
