Director Statement

With Roar Epic, we wanted to tell a very common condition in our generation, those born in the 80's, today called the Italians unemployed. Unemployed are not only insecure in work, but they are also insecure towards the future and in feelings. We have talked about this theme with ironic and never rhetorical tone, trying to give us a tone of struggle and challenge to this condition, but always not taking too seriously.
