Chiara Armentano is originally from Italy and is now based in London.
She graduated from the University of Bologna with a PhD — her thesis was on the postmodern narrative elements of American horrors. Later, Chiara moved to the US to study 16mm filmmaking at the University of Southern California, followed by Film Editing at the Edit Center in New York City.
To build on these studies in America, Chiara then moved to the UK where she gained an MA in Filmmaking, with a specialty in Editing, at Goldsmiths University of London.
As an Editor, Chiara has cut short films, music videos, and documentaries. These projects include the feature documentary, Ming of Harlem: Twenty One Storeys in the Air, which screened at Oscar festivals.
Chiara worked closely with our Director to develop the narrative flow of Sonar. She edited the film at her studio in Bari.
