Luca Guadagnino is an Italian director.

He spent part of his childhood in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia, were his Sicilian father worked as teacher.

He has said:

I’m dark-skinned because my mother is Algerian; when I came back to Palermo, my classmates starting calling me “n—-r.” I will never forget that. I learned very quickly how to be an outsider, and how to stay on the outside of the frame yet always look at what’s happening in the center.
