Interview: Gianpaolo Lupori

I recently sat down to talk with Italian director and cinematographer Gianpaolo Lupori as part of a series of arts features for Shanghai 247.

Since coming to China in 2005, Lupori has shot nearly half-a-dozen independent films including Meatspace (2006), Dark Moon (2007), and Roving Dreams (2010) and is currently wrapping up post-production on his latest project, Nighthawks (2013). His work explores questions of personal expression, urbanism, and the impact of technology on Chinese culture and society.
