Mini Bio (1)
My name is Loredana Gasparotto. I was born in Italy, beneath the shadows of the Venetian Prealps foothills. Like any individual anywhere across the globe, I grew and came of age in blissful obscurity. Like the town covered in the silhouette of the Alps, the person I had once been was living in the shadows. However, the essence of me - the identity residing dormant within my soul-was never truly conceived until I arrived in New York City. It wasn't until the moment my feet touched the "terra ferma" of Manhattan that I realized, in this new country across the vast expanse of the Atlantic, that I finally had the opportunity to recreate myself. The Loredana of Bassano Del Grappa had passed away. What took her place was a new woman, one who had been born of her own creativity and ideas - one with the dream of being able to tell the story of all of us who continue on, dissatisfied, with seemingly predestined lives of ambiguity.I shed the skin of my former self and began to grow another. I enrolled myself in film school so that I could relate these stories of self-conception on screen for anyone in the world to see. Through film I could reveal our birthing pangs - the trials of those of us who struggle to locate our souls at the center of the act of artistic creation. I could expose on screen the struggles that the chaotic, creative, and yet fertile mind experiences as it constantly faces opposition from a society that craves order and favors mediocrity. Because of film I understood that I could relate a story to the audience that would speak to and awaken the dormant artist within them. Pentimento was conceived because of this desire to live a true life. With your help, Pentimento, the story of us all, can be born.
