Salvatore Mereu (Dorgali, Nuoro, 1965) has studied at Dams in Bologna, and later at the National School of Cinema, where in 1997 he obtained the diploma in directing. As a student of the school he made two short films “Prima della fucilazione” and “Miguel”. “Ballo a tre passi” is his first long film – made thanks to the Axelotil price won at Visione italiane and produced by Gianluca Arcopinto – with which he received also the first price for best film during the Settimana della Critica and the honourable mention De Laurentis at the Venice Film Festival in 2003. For the past years he alternates his cinematography activity with that of teacher for image education.
