"I’m thrilled to participate in the project "One Day In America" because it offers a wonderful insight into problems facing us all and will create a thoughtful series to bring those problems into focus. It will be a powerful tool to stimulate the dialogue in our country. I'm looking forward to this new and exciting challenge."
VALENTINA CANIGLIA • AIC - IMAGO Director Of Photography
"After reading the story, I decided to accept the offer to be the director of photography on the project because I was deeply attracted by the intensity of the characters, the story, and especially because American society is the central figure of the film. All this felt innovative and I saw an opportunity to open people’s eyes through my visual imagination of this world and everything in it. I think Ivana was able to write and capture the essence of something incredibly deep, something new that needs to be revealed, explored and told. Another reason that I accepted was the conversation I had with Ivana. There was an immediate connection between us. We understood each's other vision, and this is gold for a cinematographer."
