Edoardo Crismani

A South Australian, Edoardo Crismani spent several years working and travelling in the United States playing in a band and working for an organisation that helped homeless children. He returned to Adelaide and in 2009 enrolled at the University of South Australia where he majored in Film and TV production.

In 2011 he wrote and directed
 a short film based on a true story of an Aboriginal woman waiting for a job interview and the mental anguish she experiences after being advised not to tell the interviewer she is Aboriginal. The resulting film, Just Be Yourself, was broadcast on NITV. Edoardo then wrote and directed four mini-documentaries; Barbara's World (his mother's story), Lenore Chantrelle (Point Pearce to Paris), Marj Tripp (the first Aboriginal woman in the navy) and Shirley Peisley (Aboriginal Elder and Activist) which were also broadcast on NITV.
