Giorgio Affanni (1978, Parma - Italy) obtained his MA degree in Oriental History at Bologna University and his PhD in Near Eastern Archaeology at Torino University. Since 1999 he worked in several Archaeological Missions in Syria, Turkmenistan and Pakistan. He edited for the Musée du Louvre Editions the book “Les ivoires d’Arslan Tash, Décor de mobilier syrien (IXe-VIIIe siècles avant J.-C.)”. His passion for cinema pushed him to go beyond the archaeological work, and led him to the realisation of several documentaries. He has held different roles within independent productions: director, set designer, electrician, machinist, camera assistant, sound engineer, editor. This eclecticism was a precise choice and trained him on all the work areas that contribute to the realization of an audiovisual product. In 2013 he created OṃVideo together with Andrea Grasselli as co-author and co-producer, with the aim of producing documentaries that develop anthropological research on the infinite variety of human cultural practices. His main focus as an author, documentarist and archaeologist is the complex relationship between human beings and their lived environment within an ecological perspective.
