Chiara Clemente

Chiara Clemente is a film director who explores identity, cultural contrast, and the creative process. Her love of art can be traced back to a childhood spent tiptoeing around paintings in her father’s studio. After attending film school at Art Center in Pasadena, she directed her first art documentary in 2000 for RAI in Italy. In the following years, Chiara continued to film and collaborate with artists such as Jim Dine, Brice Marden, and Frank Gehry. In 2005, she began filming her first critically-acclaimed documentary, “Our City Dreams”, which followed the lives and work of five contemporary women artists (Nancy Spero, Marina Abramovic, Kiki Smith, Ghada Amer and Swoon) in New York City. Our City Dreams premiered at the prestigious Film Forum in February 2009, screened in more than 30 cities worldwide, and was broadcast on the Sundance Channel.
Shortly after, Chiara directed several short films: “Curiosity” for Saatchi and Saatchi, “Remembering Sprouse” with Louis Vuitton for The New York Times, “Richard Tuttle and Mario Sorrenti” for W Magazine and a series of short portrait pieces for Anthropology.
In 2010 she directed a film for Levi’s initiative “Shape What’s to Come” that premiered at the TED Conference. That same year she wrote and directed: “Beginnings”, an original short film series for the Sundance Channel, which after the Second Season won a Webby Award for Best Doc Series. She also directed the online series Made Here: Performing Artists on Work and Life in New York City, which is now in production for its fourth season.
Recently Chiara has worked with Apple, Wieden + Kennedy Portland,  Persol for Publicis Paris, directed her first music video for Lucy Michelle & The Velvet Lapelles  which was featured on MTV and did two wonderful films for Baccarat and Style.com

Chiara Clemente’s latest series of short documentaries focuses on the beginning of a creative career when everything seems hopeful and possible. The aptly named “Beginnings: Paris,” delves into the creative process and inspirations of five Parisians, including actress-musician Charlotte Gainsbourg, shoe designer Christian Louboutin, perfumer Frédéric Malle, film director and cartoonist Marjane Satrapi, and bookseller of Shakespeare & Co., Sylvia Whitman.

The style of the micro-documentaries is the same. The big names of our time use photos, songs and memories to tell about themselves and answer the most important question of all: how did it all start for them?

Chiara Clemente’s curiosity about the early lives of creative talents began in her own youth as she tiptoed around the paintings in the studio of her father, the artist Francesco Clemente. But instead of paints and canvas, the director decided that she is “a storyteller whose medium is film. “I do documentaries, but I say I do portraits.”
