    Interview with Giorgio Angelini

    Interview with Giorgio Angelini

    An interview with designer, musician, and filmmaker Giorgio Angelini. After touring in bands for much of his 20s, Giorgio enrolled in the Masters of Architecture program at Rice University during the 2008 real estate collapse. It was during his time at Rice that the seeds for Giorgio’s directorial debut, OWNED: A Tale of Two Americas began to take shape, which led to him co-founding a film production company called Ready Fictions. He continues to seek out projects that can help expand our understanding of the perversity of American culture. Architectural, film, or otherwise.
