Myself, and three other British film-makers, as well as two Italian ‘makers were asked to develop a ‘Video-Letter’ for a film festival celebrating the art of hand-written letter writing. My project, created from Italian actress Amanda Sandrelli’s original concept quickly became – ‘To My Younger Self’, a short film written by myself and shot entirely in and around the Norwich area.
The Festival Delle Lettere premiere was a showcase of all short films – screened with an Italian voice-over of the original letters. The event was held in the Litta Theatre, Milan – the oldest of it’s kind in the city, and was in association with Maria Claire Italia whom also featured the festival in their October Issue.
The full version of To My Younger Self, will be screened at a string of festivals in the coming months, as well as an online feature in the near future.
