I have some very special news to announce this week. I found out on Sunday that the short documentary film “CANIGLIA” made the official selection into this year’s OMAHA FILM FESTIVAL. The film is directed by award-winning director David M. Weiss and features an in-depth look at my work, techniques, poetics, and creative process. The film score was composed by the International award-winning Carlos Hof and features his brilliant neoclassical orchestral compositions.
“CANIGLIA” premieres on the big screen at AKSARBEN Cinema on Saturday, March 7th at 8:45pm and on Sunday, March 8th at 2:30pm in the Short Film Block Section.
Voted by MovieMaker magazine as one of the “Top 25 Film Festivals,” the Omaha Film Festival exists to celebrate the artistic, educational, and historical importance of motion pictures. It gives independent film artists a platform for sharing their work and creating a dialogue with the community. If you are in Omaha, Nebraska during the week of March 3-8 please come out to the festival and see the film.

Caniglia documentary synopsis:
Caniglia is known for his emotionally charged figurative and portrait paintings, which focus on the human condition. His work explores moments caught in time that show glimpses of climate change, wars, revolution, and poverty. His work embraces the old masters’ style of technical virtuosity while embodying the ancient Greek archetypes of life, love, death and rebirth. Caniglia has a strong global following with his work in private collections and museums around the world. This film strikes at the heart of the human psyche and gives the audience an inside look at his illuminating, foreboding, haunting but always poignant narrative paintings. Caniglia’s world wallows in the glories of expansiveness, empathy, and timeless places.
Hope to see you at the premiere screening at AKSARBEN Cinema on March 7th.
Thank you for your support.
