In 1994, Donato Rotunno co-founded Tarantula Luxembourg and, one year later, helped set up Tarantula Belgium. As a producer, he has overseen over 18 feature films, including several co-productions with France, Belgium and other European countries, including Une Part Du Ciel by Bénédicte Liénard, Calvaire by Fabrice du Welz, and Nue Propriété by Joachim Lafosse. Graduated of the EAVE producers training programme, Donato has also produced numerous short films and several documentaries. His career as a director began with the short Fishtrip and documentaries about specific Luxembourg issues, and was followed in 2006 with his first feature film In A Dark Place. He just finished his second feature film Baby(A)lone, based on the novel Amok by Tullio Forgiarini, and working with Jean Portante on an original script. As a producer, Donato is currently developing a feature project, Raqs, with Yilmaz Arslan (Fratricide).
