Charlie de Salis

Writer, Director

Charlie de Salis spent eleven years in Aotearoa, during which time he directed two Inside New Zealand documentaries, an episode of True Life Stories, and three much-travelled short films. Time directing commercials fed into his script for 1996 TV movie Highwater; Michael Hurst starred as an advertising man reassessing his life. De Salis' man-at-sea tale A Moment Passing played at the Venice and Cannes Film Festivals. Since returning to his homeland of Australia, he has worked in a variety of writing and script development roles, written a film about cinematographer Don McAlpine, and lectured in scriptwriting.
