About Federico

I worked as a musician and actor until I turned 20, when I traveled and started studying music in Europe. While living in England, I began discovering the Japanese culture. In 2001, I moved to Tokyo, where I' ve been working as an actor and music composer. In 2009, I started to produce and direct short films, which then led to the creation of the production company “Fukahire Films”, now based in Buenos Aires. Among the movies I made, there are "Metromucho" (documentary), "Open Eyes" (short) and "Ishinomaki rock 'n roll city" (documentary)

    Enter the Void (2009)
    Film (Drama and Fantasy) Actor Tokyo's nasty underside, seen primarily through the eyes of Oscar, a heavy drug user, whose sister Linda is a stripper. Oscar also has flashbacks to his childhood when trauma upends the siblings. Oscar's drug-fed hallucinations alter Tokyo's already-disconcerting nights, and after the police shoot him, he can float above and look down: on his sister's sorrow, on the rooms of a love hotel, and on life at even a molecular level. The spectrum's colors can be beautiful; it's people's colorless lives that can be ugly. And what of afterlife, is there more than a void? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>
