Chris Martini
Christopher Martini is the son of sculptor, Raffaele Martini, from Rome Italy, and ex-parole officer, Pat Margolin, from Dallas Texas. In 1996 Chris graduated NYU Film School and has been working as an editor since. His most recent credit is “Gulf War Syndrome: Killing Our Own”, a feature doc about Gulf War vets, which won four awards, including Best Documentary at the World Fest Houston International Film Festival, as well as being accepted in thirty film festivals.

Chris’ first entry into the industry was as a child actor in the HBO feature, “The Glitterdome”, where he played an abused child, opposite John Lithgow, in a scene described by the actor at the AFI as one of his most memorable in his career. Chris wrote and will direct “The Stone Child”, a feature film about a Lakota boy struggling for identity as he is torn between the two worlds of his Mormon mother and Native-American father. The script was Shortlisted at the 2002 & 2004 Sundance Institute Feature Film Program.

The word spread through the Native community and Chris found art pouring in from Native artists all over the country, as well as Native musicians to perform. With the money raised, Chris set out for South Dakota where he shot the short version with a splinter crew, led by Larry Pourier, “Skins”, and shot by AFI alumni John Rotan, on Super 16mm. “The Stone Child” short film was shot entirely with non-professional Native-American actors.
