Experiencing Interruptions?

Pier e Lisa

This song is written and performed by Marcello Benetti, an Italian composer who asked me to collaborate and to visualize it.
The song is inspired by a true story and it was recorded in Spring 2021 in Italy. Marcello grasped a moment in life of his old friend, who is father of a girl on wheelchair, and he put it in a song.
I immediately liked it and so I decided to direct the clip. I started thinking how to represent the relationship between a father and a disable child, and the love that overcomes all limits and prejudices.
We shot in Riva del Garda, at Parco Miralago, closed to the Garda lake, in December 2022.
