Manuella Dallestudied political science and sociology before she started directing documentaries for the show “Strip tease” for the major French channel France 3. After this, she captured the world of contemporary art by directing portraits of artists ranging from photographers to street-artists to sculptors for the internationally recognized Franco-German channel Arte.
In 2013, while living in Los Angeles, she directed a feature film on a French-Colombian priest that decided to create a multi-cultural church. This documentary granted her international recognition: it was shown in many film festivals around the world and was bought in several countries.
She also directed some free-form videos reflecting on contemporary art and technology (“Je me souviens” for 3eme scène de l’Opéra de Paris and « Scan 1 » for Biennale de Montrouge).
Last year, she focussed on the world of young artists at the Opéra de Paris through her documentary “Opéra Académie” that also aired on major French channel France 2.
She recently moved back to Los Angeles where she is preparing her new film.
