Anna Alfieri

Anna Alfieri
Writer, Director, Producer, Actress

Anna Alfieri was born in Bergamo (Italy) on the 3rd of April 1986. 

As a slightly rebellious teenager, Anna drops out of university at the age of 19 and moves to Milan to study method acting. A couple of years later she moves to London, where she attends Richmond Drama School and several film-acting courses, whilst juggling between part time jobs.

Over a period of 8 years, Anna ends up appearing in over 30 film and theatre productions.

The catalyst for embarking on the production of her own film was represented for Anna by the the pain and frustration coming with being a jobbing actress in London and not seeing her career ever going anywhere, the lack of meaning a lot of the productions she was cast in had for her and thew sudden, dramatic breakdown of her most important relationship.

That's how BORDERLINE was born: as an outlet for a kind of pain she could not find any other outlet for.

It is a process described by Anna as the “dance with the demons”, as it reflects a period of untamed, painful inspiration, which resulted in a drive never experienced before. 

Anna ended up producing, directing and doing everything else for this film initially more as a necessity than as a choice, but soon discovering it was in fact filmmaking in all its aspects and the magic that comes with it that she was truly passionate about, much more than just acting.
