Director Statement

Balloon with cream, was born during the "100 hours Torino", unpublished shorts film competition.
This year the theme was 100 years after “Cabiria”, that is a tribute to the Turin Film 100 years ago, when Giovanni Pastrone made his colossal "Cabiria".
With this inspiration to the silent film and black and white, born the idea for the short film. I decided with Waldemara, my wife, to develop a story inspired by the movie world of the early 20th century.
"Balon" is an area of Turin, a place where takes place a big market with a panoramic balloon. This location gives rise to the name of the short.
