MATTHEW PUCCINI JOINS UNIT9.
29 August 2019

UNIT9 are pleased to announce the signing of up-and-coming filmmaker Matthew Puccini to their global roster.

Named by independent film hub IndieWire as one of their twenty-five most promising LGBTQ directors, Puccini is already firmly established on the festival circuit thanks to his emotionally powerful short films.

For example, the New Yorker's loosely autobiographical 'Lavender' offers a nuanced portrayal of a gay man in love with an older couple. Raw yet refined, Puccini's 2019 release struck a chord with audiences and film festival juries alike.



Another who was taken with Puccini's filmography is UNIT9's creative partner Michelle Craig, who says: "We immediately fell in love with his work: thoughtful, evocative, and truly grounded.

"As well as being a natural storyteller, his ability to shape and craft brand stories is truly inspiring. We feel so lucky to be starting this collaboration."

In the meantime, check out Puccini's 2017 short film 'The Mess He Made', which focuses on a man killing time in a strip mall as he awaits the results of an HIV test. Once again demonstrating Puccini's grasp of mature themes, the film also shows a knack for casting and location.



To discuss Matthew Puccini in more detail, ring UNIT9's London office on 020 7613 3330.
