Mo Scarpelli

Big Rapids

Mo Scarpelli is a director and cinematographer of mostly-non-fiction cinema. Her films linger on the rupture of identity by exterior circumstances; the cold violence inflicted on the individual by changing landscapes; and the myriad contradictions a human must inhabit to survive the world, as well as survive themselves.

Mo’s films have been exhibited at the Berlinale International Film Festival, Visions du Réel, Film Society of Lincoln Center, IDFA, BFI London Film Festival, South by Southwest Film Festival, at Olafur Eliasson’s Studios in Berlin, among other venues, as well as on television broadcast with ARTE and ZDF.
