“The case of Emanuela Orlandi is not the simple story of the disappearance of one girl. It’s much more…” Gain insight into the work with the Netflix True Crime series ´Vatican Girl: The Disappearance of Emanuela Orlandi’ and meet director Mark Lewis and producer Chiara Messineo.
In 1983, a 15-year-old girl living in Vatican City, disappeared under mysterious circumstances. The case made worldwide headlines and led to intense speculation about what exactly happened to Orlandi. The four-part documentary series sets out to explore various theories and spirals into a story involving the Vatican, KGB, the Mafia and the Pope. 40-years later the abduction remains unsolved, but the renewed attention has led to a recent re-opening of the case.
Join the session for a nerdy deep dive into the artistic toolbox of Mark Lewis as the session focuses on how you turn an interview based past tense story into a present-day engaging visual treat. On stage are senior producer Chiara Messineo and director Mark Lewis, whose work also includes the critically acclaimed ´Don’t F**k with Cats: Hunting an Internet Killer´.
