With a reputation as a director of controversial cinema, Abel Ferrara moves into his fourth decade of filmmaking with continued work in the US as well as European projects. Recent successes include Pasolini, starring Willem Dafoe, and Welcome to NY, starring Gerard Depardieu and Jacqueline Bisset. Born in the Bronx in 1951, Ferrara started on Super 8 in his teens in upstate New York with writers Nicholas St. John and John McIntyre. His first features were DRILLER KILLER and MS. 45 in the late 70s. The 80s and 90s led to a cult reputation with legendary films like THE KING OF NEW YORK, BAD LIEUTENANT, THE ADDICTION and THE FUNERAL. Ferrara is currently preparing his next feature SIBERIA with Willem Dafoe, Isabelle Huppert and Nicolas Cage.
