Commissioned by K11, 'A City of Ghosts' took us to the beautiful city of Venice to meet Venetian mask maker, Davide Belloni.
A former architecture student at the university of Venice, Davide started making and illegally selling traditional Venetian masks on the streets before opening his shop, Ca’Macana, in 1984. He is now the proud owner of one of the most popular traditional mask making workshops in the city.
Our film explores the intricate process of mask-making while also giving a glimpse of the mysterious Venice. As a city built on both tradition and tourism, we wanted to get outside the bubble and capture the daily lives of true Venetians, drawing a parallel about what is real and what is hiding behind a mask.
