CHIARA CLEMENTE is a film director who explores identity, cultural contrast and the creative process. The daughter of the artist Francesco Clemente, she grew up moving between India, New York and Italy -- "each place adding to the stream of memories that inspire my work today." But she says she particularly relates to the Amalfi Coast, where five generations of family have lived on her mother's side. As an adult she has lived in Rome and NYC

FRANCESCO CLEMENTE is an Italian and American contemporary artist. His art is known for being inclusive and nomadic, crossing many borders, intellectual and geographical. Originally from Naples, he studied architecture in Rome but left to pursue art, traveling with another Italian artist to Afghanistan. He first encountered India in 1973, which became a lodestar for his work. He currently divides his time between New York and India, where he collaborates with local artists.
