We Are Art Through the Eyes of Annalaura is a documentary about second chances. It depicts the artist’s journey to create a multimedia art installation shaped like a Giant Eye. She incorporates the lives of four young people finding a path out of the darkness and reclaiming their self-esteem. The film features the original song “We Are Art” written by Annalaura di Luggo and Paky Di Maio, the composer of the documentary.

Not Rated | 69mins

Annalaura di Luggo is a multimedia artist and documentary director and producer based in Naples, Italy. She is a member of the International Documentary Association and The Society of Composers & Lyricists (SCL).

In 2019 she was invited to the 58th Venice Biennale with her work of art Genesis. In 2018 she was invited to New York to display her solo art show and documentary Blind Vision at the United Nations, and at the General Italian Consulate. Fusing aesthetics, performance, and multimedia technology, the artist created visually striking works that invited dialogue about social issues. She has tackled incarceration (Never Give Up multimedia installation and documentary), environmental issues (Sea Visions / 7 Viewpoints), human rights (Human Rights Vision, for the Kennedy Foundation), and blindness (Blind Vision, multimedia installation and award-winning documentary based on the artist’s enlightening journey with visually impaired people).

Annalaura was interviewed in the TV series Giving Back Generation, which starred Selena Gomez, Nina Dobrev, Sofia Carson, and Emma Marrone. To create Napoli Eden, her previous artistic project, Annalaura used recycled aluminum to create four monumental works of art that were on display around Naples. The objective was to encourage debate on sustainability in the environment. This project inspired the director Bruno Colella to film the documentary of the same title, which tells the artist’s creative experience. The film qualified for consideration for the 2021 Academy Awards in the best documentary category. Recycled aluminum again plays a part in Collòculi, her latest artwork which is a sculptural iris that transmits multimedia and immersive content. Colloculi has been exhibited at the National Archeological Museum of Naples, and the Banco Napoli Foundation in Naples and the artist recorded also an audio-guide for blind people. The creative process is the focus of the documentary We Are Art Through the Eyes of Annalaura, directed by the artist herself.
