Biography

A former investment banker, Uberto Pasolini entered the film industry in the international marketing and distribution departments of 20th Century Fox before joining David Puttnam's Enigma Films in the early 1980s. His first work for Puttnam was serving as a location scout on such films as Roland Joffe's "The Killing Fields" (1984), "The Frog Prince" (1985) and Joffe's "The Mission" (1986). When Puttnam was appointed as head of Columbia Pictures, Pasolini moved to L.A. and served as vice president of production, overseeing David Mamet's "Things Change" and Emir Kusturica's "Time of the Gypsies" (both 1988). He rejoined Enigma in London in 1988 and served as an associate producer on "Meeting Venus" (1991) and was one of the producers of the British telefilm "A Dangerous Man: Lawrence After Arabia" (also 1991; aired in USA in 1992), which starred Ralph Fiennes.
