Director Bio

Anna Alfieri was born in Bergamo (Italy) on the 3rdof April 1986. At 19 she drops out of university and move to Milan ti study method acting.

A couple of years later she moves to London, where she attends Richmond Drama School and several film-acting courses. Over a period of 8 years, Anna takes part to over 30 film and theatre productions, climaxing with the production her own film, which was triggered by the hardship of being a jobbing actress in London, the lack of meaning a lot of projects she was cast in had for her and the sudden dramatic breakdown of her most meaningful relationship. That's how “Borderline” was born: as an outlet for a kind of pain she couldn’t find any other outlet for.

Director Statement

What to say, making this film has been like undergoing heart surgery for me. It’s saved me and killed me at the same time, as it would do to any director as emotionally attached to something they are creating. I guess when you set out to exploit your pain for creative purposes you must be ready to deal with the consequences, for better or worse.
