"I am... haunted by the conviction that the divine William is the biggest and most successful fraud ever practiced on a patient world." (Henry James)
IN THE CASE OF JOHN FLORIO, the latest documentary film by Agata De Santis, explores a extraordinary new theory in the Shakespeare Authorship Question debate. What if the greatest English writer to ever live was actually the son of an Italian immigrant? Slated for production in 2015/16.

Elias C. Varoutsos’ short dark comedy, SMELL MY MAGIC, features a foul-mouthed Pixie with a vocabulary that would make a sailor blush, and Pete, a marine biologist with a save-the-whales complex. They meet in a rundown bathroom after Pete recites an old shaman’s riddle. He’s hoping for three life-changing wishes, but the Pixie has other plans. The film is currently on the film festival circuit, with a first stop at the Boston Sci-Fi Festival.

In MAL'OCCHIO, filmmaker Agata De Santis sets out to uncover the world of the evil eye - where one can become physically ill by another's envious glances, where the only remedy is a phone call to the old woman down the street, and prevention involves wearing strange-looking amulets. Agata travels to Italy, New York, and to her mother's kitchen in Montreal to decide once and for all if the evil eye is real.
