THE DUCHESS played to rave reviews at the February 2019 Experimental Film Festival in Los Angeles.

Matthew Toffolo: What motivated you to make this film?

Marco De Ornellas: Every story comes from a different inspiration. This film was born after I did a photoshoot for a brand at a bar in Harlem, NY. The bar had an energy about it that reminded me of the hotel in the movie “The Shinning”. At that moment on I could see the movie in my mind. And if you’re wondering, yes, its the bar in the actual movie.
