For his works he was awarded with a Communication prize at the JVC Tokyo video-festival, with Best Film Prize at Firenze International Film Festival, an honorable mention by the Los Angeles Shock Film Fest, an Award of Merit by the Los Angeles Cinema  Festival of Hollywood and with a Promo Award Prize by Italy SKY TV.

ABOUT THE MOVIE

 

“Lulu and the right words” is a medium length movie created by an ensemble of Italian and American talents who joined force to narrate a crime/thriller story with surreal nuances about love and relationships in a dark cynical world of contradictions and paradoxes.

With a cast of talented American actors, this film is the first American work of the Italian director Enrico Le Pera and in close collaboration with the Italian music composer Federico Ferrandina and represents an introspective analysis of the main character, Lulu, a young modern independent woman, with a mysterious unpredictable side.

 

What critic says:

 

“Enrico Le Pera’s films prove that in Italy there is a school of cinema which asks questions. A school of cinema on the edge, with an intellectual venue which moves images away from their obviousness, releasing astonishment and voice to the logic of vision.”

(Serafino Murri, co-founder of Close-Up cinema magazine, Filmmaker’s Magazine)
