Shari Yantra Marcacci
Multi-lingual Shari Yantra Marcacci was born in Locarno, Switzerland. She used to be a classical dancer and has a Law Degree from Zurich University. 1995-2000 she worked at the Locarno Film Festival assisting the VIP guests.
2003-2005 Shari studied Editing and Photography at UCLA and directing/screenwriting/editing at the Los Angeles Film School. Her first short film “Room 411, the thin Line between Mania and Depression” was shown at the Trieste Film Festival. Her thesis film “Nightshift” has been in the official selection of 14 film festivals in the US and in Europe and was sponsored by the Swiss Cultural Department.
Shari co-wrote the documentary “An African Election” which was in the World Documentary Competition at the Sundance Film Festival 2’011 and film festivals all over the world. “An African Election” has won several awards and has been released theatrically in the UK and USA. “An African Election” is nominated for the Independent Spirit Awards 2’012 in the Best Documentary category.
Her most recent short film “Der Fisch”, which she has directed and produced stars Russian star Oleg Vidov.
In the summer of 2012 Shari produced "Who Killed Johnny" an independent feature film directed by Yangzom Brauen and starring Melanie Winiger, Max Loong and Carlos Leal.
Currently, Shari is looking for funds for her first feature film “Stille”, which she wrote and is going to direct. "Stille" got development funds in Switzerland and is going to be a Swiss/American production. “Stille” is the dramatic story of the deaf dancer Flores – a subtle journey in which ambition and love lead her on the verge of good and bad, until she finds her way back home and overcomes her fears.
