I have tried to correct the cinematography credit for the short film 'Nasacita di un'isola' (1955). The submission number is #190416-100039-060000. I have also provided a YouTube link to the short movie to prove that my submission is correct, but it was rejected anyway. Is there any problem?

Here is the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hfge_sFhqc0
At 0:12 it shows: 'FOTOGRAFIA - Franco Prosperi e Fabrizio Palombelli.' Franco Prosperi should not be confused with Francesco Prosperi.

At the moment Francesco Prosperi is listed as being the cinematographer with the name ”Franco Prosperi” (which is the director/writer of this short film).

In many sources ”Francesco” is actually listed as ”Franco”, though:
https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Franc...

So are you sure there is ”another” Franco Prosperi (cinematographer)? Since Francesco Prosperi is also known as ”Franco”, this could easily get confusing.

I am sure that the short movie was directed, written and photographed by Franco Prosperi ( https://www.imdb.com/name/nm10304264/?ref_=ttfc_fc_dr1 ), the same director who went on to make several mondo movies in the 1960s. Francesco 'Franco' Prosperi ( https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0698779/?ref_=nv_sr_1?ref_=nv_sr_1 ) had nothing to do with it. You can fibnd some more info on the short documentary here: https://www.davinotti.com/index.php?f=45300
The same mistake is repeated with another movie, 'La donna nel mondo' (1966): Francesco Prosperi is credited as a co-director (as Franco Prosperi), but the movie was actually made by Franco Prosperi. Francesco is also credited as a writer together with Paolo Cavara and Gualtiero Jacopetti - but the movie was written by Jacopetti alone. Moreover, Prosperi, Cavara and Jacopetti are also listened as cinematographers together with Antonio Climati and Benito Frattari, but in fact Climati and Frattari worked alone. (You can check the movie here: 
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=608s7egiX10 ). I have tried to correct all these issue several times (#190416-095657-769000), but my corrections have always been rejected.
