About Maddalena Kingsley

"I have had a passion for filmmaking for as long as I can remember. My work revolves primarily around the foundational concepts and classic themes found in mythology, fairy tales, folk tales, legends, and classic literature. 


Whether that be in a period piece or in a contemporary retelling, I strongly believe that these classic tales that we all have grown to know and love will resinate across all demographic groups and are likely to last forever. "
