Director Statement

The story is inspired by my grandparents' relationship during the late stages of my late grandfather's struggle with Alzheimer's disease.

My first and initial reactions to their situation as an observer were sadness and confusion, but it quickly transformed into love and patience as I spent more time with them.

It is very tragic witnessing your loved one regress to an unrecognizable state; however, the rare moments of clarity make everything absolutely worth while, because it reminds you that they are still in there somewhere.

I approached this film with a light tone as I personally feel that I connect better with heavy topics through comedic eyes and I wanted to tell the story through a grandchild's eyes, my personal point of view, looking at my grandparents' current life.

I directed the film in Italian even though I do not speak it; I wanted to create that challenge of incomprehension for myself in order to make it more authentic.

"Forget About It." is my graduation film for the London Film School. It was shot in the Padova, a province in the north of Italy.
