Director Giulia Mucci signs to COMPULSORY
Italian director Giulia Mucci, creator of comic-horror shorts The Exorsink and DECREPITO, has signed to London-based production company COMPULSORY.
Based between London and Rome, Mucci has been making a name for herself on the DIY art, fashion and film scenes in both the UK and Italy. Her work has been showcased at festivals worldwide and in publications such as i-D, lauded for her new female-led perspective and distortion of a typically male gaze found in horror.
From an art direction background, Giulia began working with artists such as Ashnikko to create otherworldly visuals within the pop landscape. She is also video editor of Polyester, an intersectional feminist fashion and culture publication aiming to bridge the gap of URL cyberfeminism with the IRL world.
Currently she has been developing a body of narrative and fashion projects with COMPULSORY slated for the summer, whilst in preparation for her debut feature, a coming of age horror, exploring the female sexual stigmatization hidden behind some lesser known Italian traditions and folklore. The feature is co-produced by COMPULSORY, with company founders Chris Toumazou and Kadri Mahmoud attached as Producer and EP respectively.
“Giulia is so intrinsically herself and unashamed in her filmmaking," says Toumazou. "She reminds us to keep creating daring work as a company, and we’re very lucky to start working with such genuine talent.”
Giulia Mucci adds that she quickly felt at home working with the team at COMPULSORY: “It struck me how interested in developing unique voices they are," she says. "Their goal isn’t to shape the talents into their likeness, but rather to support each person’s artistic growth with their experience and heartwarming care.
"Their genuine excitement and love for imagemaking it’s contagious and I feel extremely honoured to start this new journey with such an amazing family. Let’s now spill some blood on that haute couture."
