GIULIA MUCCI SIGNS WITH COMPULSORY.
7 May 2021

Italian horrorphile Giulia Mucci has joined the talented roster at COMPULSORY for representation.

A disciple of Nobuhiko Obayashi, Peter Greenaway, and Dario Argento, Mucci studied Fashion Communication at Central Saint Martins before deciding to "spill some blood on haute couture". This attitude piqued COMPULSORY's interest straight away.


Founding partner Chris Toumazou says: "Giulia is so intrinsically herself and unashamed in her filmmaking. Giulia reminds us to keep creating daring work as a company, and we’re very lucky to start working with such genuine talent."


COMPULSORY's genuine excitement and love for image-making is contagious and I feel extremely honoured to start this new journey with such an amazing family.

 ”

Short films like 'The Last Day of Spicy Jack' and 'The Exorsink' (which stars Mucci's parents and grandfather) encapuslate the Italian's love of pulp horror and subversive narratives. She reckons COMPULSORY respect and encourage distinctive voices like hers to thrive in the commercial realm.


"Since I first got in contact with COMPULSORY," Mucci says, "it struck me how interested in developing unique voices they are. Their goal isn't to shape the talents into their likeness, but rather to support each person's artistic growth with their experience and heartwarming care. Their genuine excitement and love for image-making is contagious and I feel extremely honoured to start this new journey with such an amazing family."
