Dominic Mercurio is a filmmaker and a talented cinematographer and editor. His latest film, the 30-minute Nuclear Family, will begin its festival run in 2012.
Nuclear Family and Dominic’s earlier short, Frank’s Mug (Virgins and Rejects Film Festival 2009) celebrate the oddness of ordinary people. Using subtle humor and unflinching insight Dominic aims to peel back layers of normalcy to unmask themes such as obsession, dysfunction and redemption.
