Mush / Poltiglia (paper-men)

Life is a blender that slices your soul, make it mush.
Love is the enzyme that makes it more digestible.
And like ink on paper-men, it remains.
A story already written, only to be lived.

Director Biography

Luca was born on April 1, 1978 (and I'm not kidding!).

He never regretted it.
However, he jealously keeps some remorse in small matryoshka-like wooden boxes. Always in love with poetry at 19 he chooses to become an accountant in defiance of the address-studies that left and right agreed on the "votes" as a man of letters. Music is a daily constant, he is also good at playing the strings of his stratocaster, but once again the job of neo-banking gains momentum. Some outstanding points, however, Luca has it.

Photography arrives at Christmas 2012. Under the tree he finds a plastic-thing 135 film camera.
She was his wife (blessed she will regret it!). Call Gianni who knows something about it and lets himself be seduced. It won't be like before. Compulsive shopping for countless vintage cameras. Shoot everywhere. Rolls of film hanging to dry in the shower, a starting point for the spasmodic search for those dots, the questions that characterize his daily thoughts. And from there: letters, notes and mixed images. Where's the music? In the rhythm of the words generated by each single frame. Today Luca loves, loves to relate and isolate himself at the same time, but above all he is making peace with all of him because of him.
