Michel Finazzi arrived from Zürich in 1968 with an electronics diploma. He became involved with video at an early stage; his first black and white editing dates back to the early 70’s.
A technical task in Yves Yersin’s “Les petites fugues” triggered him to pursue his training.
He filmed several television reports for RTS Swiss Television in the series “L’antenne est à vous!” and then made his first documentaries for Comptoir Suisse and Compagnie Vaudoise d’Eléctricité.
These were followed by broadcasts and documentaries in various fields such as the arts, society, classical dance, medicine and fashion.
For 16 years, starting in 1997, he led video workshops for prison inmates. This experience inspired him to start the shooting of his full-length feature film BLOC CENTRAL in 2014.
