Biography

Italian cinema director and screenwriter, considered one of the Italian cinema's great imaginative realists of the 1960s.

De Seta made ten short documentaries between 1954 and 1959, before directing his first feature-length film, Banditi a Orgosolo (Bandits of Orgosolo).

His early documentaries focus on the everyday life of many of Sicily's poorest workers, and are notable for their lack of voice-over narration, quiet mood, and striking color.

He died on 28 November 2011, aged 88, in Calabria, Italy.
