SHORT DIRECTOR'S BIO: Ivan Olita's character could be identified as a contemporary Bruce Chatwin. Forcing himself to only dress in black and live out of a carry-on. he sees his real home not in a house but in the thousands of roads he walks. With one foot stateside in Los Angeles and the other in his native Italy, the filmaker and creative director confidently moves between the worlds of cinema, art, and fashion by successfully consulting for top tier brands and media platforms while pursuing his own platforms while pursuing his own personal research and development as a documentarian trained at Werner Herzog's Rogue film school. The production company he founded, BRAVO, is spread across the globe with a team of seven creatives that deliver thought-provoking doc-formats for both commercial and editorial purposes. He is a Vimeo Staff Pick regular and his most recent projects have been featured on POV, Nowness, National Geographic, The Atlantic, Director's Notes, Short Of the Week, W Magazine, Aeon, Dazed, Vogue and the New Yorker.
