There, thanks to teamwork, I met Bronte, co-director of “Puet”, with whom the desire to turn work into a short film was born even after meeting in Romania.
Puiet grew up with thousands of difficulties, like the protagonist in our documentary. The film, which was entirely produced with the protagonist in Romania, has a final 14-minute duration, and then required two years of work, Challenging all the restrictions imposed by the pandemic and forcing us to work remotely from Italy to the US where Bronte lives – he admits – is a no easy task of confining art to the ether, which requires sessions in unimaginable time zones. But we felt – he continues – that we had something special on hand that was worth developing. In the end we were right.”
Even the mere selection at Venice was an ‘award’ for us, enough to repay us for all the effort – he declares – It was victory and then crowning glory.”
