To My Younger Self

To My Younger Self – A Short Film By Emmaalouise Smith
Created for Festival Delle Lettere and The London Short Film Festival

Festival Delle Lettere in association with Marie Claire Italia took place at the Litta Theatre, Milan on 3rd October 2014.

The original concept letter by Italian actress Amanda Sandrelli was written along with the brief ‘Letter to an Ex’.

To My Younger Self is the outcome; it is a short audio-visual film with experimental themes, shot entirely in Norwich, in both private and public locations. “I wanted to stay away from a romantic love-story as much as possible, and really didn’t want either a biased sad-or-happy ending film, and the aim was to just make this a film about a girl, who has gone through this ‘thing’, and wanted to show what happens to her as a person, as she begins to move on.”

It starts with a red-tinted nightmare, and changes with a mood-ring of visuals throughout, which reflect how she is feeling. Following The Girl from sadness to contentment as she comes out of her shell a new person. Like a collage of colour, we follow The Girl as she finds beauty in the everyday, where her surroundings and reality blend into the thoughts of her head.
