BIOGRAPHY

Son of Carlos Giacri (a tugboat telegraph operator of the port of Montevideo), and Ladi Galarraga (housewife). Her younger sister is an important link in the filmmaking decision. From a very young age, he shows great interest in photography, at the age of 20 he sees "A clockwork orange" by Stanley Kubrick, film that leads him to follow his vocation.

BEGINNINGS

In 2000, Giuseppe travels to the United States to visit his sister who is studying journalism at Brenau University, Gainesville, Georgia. There, he participates in a short film as the main actor and this motivates him to start studying cinema. He finds out his true passion in 2003 when entering the Film School of Uruguay E.C.U in Montevideo city. That same year, he edits the short film "La Isla de la Tentación". In 2004, he directs, edits and produces several short films.


In 2007, he worked as a Freelance in post-production, camera and lighting for Atenea Producción Audiovisual until 2008. In November 2008, he decided to expand his ability to direct films and managed to have his own production company called Traveling-Pro. In 2009, she moved to Brazil and settled in the city of Rio de Janeiro, also working as a Freelance, in some advertising agencies. At the time, he began to frequent Rede Globo Producciones (entertainment company) and there he made his contribution as Camera Assistant, Cameraman and Photography Assistant in some productions.

At the beginning of 2010, he produces the documentary "Coupé-Décalé" in the favela in Cidade Alta (typical music style, popular dance from Ivory Coast and the Ivorian community of Paris, France). In January 2011, he returns to Montevideo where the opportunity to produce a journalistic and entertainment show called "Por qué te vas" arises, presenting the life of Uruguayan emigrants around the world as subject. The pilot show was completed on May 25, 2012.


In 2013, a new challenge arises, the making of the short film "Por Ella", an action fiction of love and zombies. The pre-production, production, filming and post, take three years. On October 8, 2016, the short film  is released for the technical team, actors and collaborators at the Museum of Visual Arts in Montevideo.


"Por Ella" has had international repercussion in different media and film festivals around the world. During this year, it was awarded at the Super Indie Film Festival in Los Angeles for "Best Short Film", "Best Thriller", "Best Producer", "Best Supporting Actress", "Best Costume Design" and "Best Film Editing". In June, it received a new recognition at the Tokyo International Short Film Festival, awarded for "Best Film Editing", stating that it is an excellent production.


At the same time, it was chosen as a finalist by the jury of the ONYCO Awards Films Festival, an annual Estonian-Ukrainian festival that takes place during December.


Stanley Kubrick´s phrase "If it can be written or thought, it can be filmed" remains everyday in Giuseppe´s mind together with a more recent one that points a new path "I have met extraordinary people, whom I have seen fight, grow and shine, that fills my soul with joy. Joy and hope, because I see in them the lineage of the great ones " G.G.


Nothing can stand between the dreamer and his dreams...
