Two mothers. One baby. A harrowing decision.
Cecilia Albertini was born and raised in Milano, Italy. She started her career working as an actress in film and television in Italy, and while observing directors at work on set, she realized she wanted to be on the other side of the camera. She holds a BA from Columbia University and she recently completed her MFA in film at UCLA, where she was the recipient of the Delia Salvi Memorial Award for Excellence in Directing Actors in 2017. Her short film "Allegra's Body Shop" won Best Comedy at the Austin Comedy Short film festival in 2018. Currently Cecilia works as a director and a documentary editor in Los Angeles. "Labor" is her thesis film and it will premiere at the LA Shorts Film Festival in July 2018.
