Guido Santi is a filmmaker, director and producer who was born in Italy. He lives and works in Los Angeles, where he also teaches at the College of the Canyons.

Santi is best-known for two documentary films he made with his wife Tina Mascara: a 2007 film about Christopher Isherwood and his much younger partner Don Bachardy, and a 2013 film about the monk and photographer Nicholas Vreeland, who is Diana Vreeland's grandson.

History[edit]

Santi first worked in Italy, writing and directing short films, and working with other young filmmakers and the director Ermanno Olmi in a group called "Ipotesi Cinema". Santi then took a Master's degree in film production at the University of Southern California, and went on to produce TV specials and documentaries. With Tina Mascara he co-founded "Asphalt Stars Productions". Santi teaches Film Aesthetics and History of Cinema at the College of the Canyons in Santa Clarita, California.[1]

An article by Santi in the Huffington Post explains how he first met Don Bachardy in 1992, and how he eventually came to make the documentary Chris & Don, which was released in 2008.[2]
