Giuseppe Boccassini is an Italian filmmaker mainly working in Germany and Italy.

He graduated in film theory at the University of Bologna and in film direction at The New University of Cinema and Television located in Cinecittà, Rome.

His work has been shown at several international film festivals and exhibitions (including FID Marseille, France, Torino Film Festival , Italy, FESTACURTAS BH , Brasil, Crossroads SF,
USA, Avvistamenti , Italy, Punto de Vista, Spain, Trentino History Museum, Italy, Pesaro Film Festival, Italy.

His entire film production is distributed by Light Cone.

By transforming and manipulating various sources of archival material, his work reflects upon the notion of a haptic proximity of contemporary media.

The director considers film as "a phallic conquerer that, folding in on itself, now flaccid deus ex machina, observes itself from the inside like a lysergic membrane that slowly founders between the folds of its own material".

His most recent collaborations include the film editing for Aldo Tambellini's solo exhibition Black Matters, at ZKM Karlsruhe, Germany and is the artist for Chicago Film Archives' 2018 Media Mixer.

He is in charge of the programme at Fracto, an Experimental Film Encounter at ACUD macht neu, Berlin.
