Lucia Pagano is a filmmaker and artist educated at the Film School in Lodz and at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm.
Her films focus on details in everyday life, often by observing seemingly meaningless fragments of reality, sometimes to absurdity. A film is more often held together by an idea or concept than a linear narrative structure.
Her films have been shown at festivals around the world, such as Sao Paolo, San Francisco, Toronto, Kiev, Beauvais and Warsaw and has been awarded or honorary mentioned at film festivals in LA, at Oberhausen in Warsaw, Stockholm, and at the Nordic Panorama Film Festival.
The film Park, directed together with Vanja Sandell Billström, was nominated for best short at the Göteborg Film Festival, and for the Tempo Short Award and won the Tempo Sound Award 2020. Her film Nadine was recently awarded at the Prague International Indie Film Festival.
