The Cooling Cake - sub ENG

Franco, emerging director and one of four brothers is on the brink of depression, unable to bring his last project to an end, lives a seemingly empty life because he's now only able to see his failures and mediocrities. Little did he know that everything was about to change because of a young girl named Margherita, she loves to live her life to the full and without compromises and she is going to show Franco a whole new truth about himself and the perspective that he was looking for.

Director Statement

We decided to create this movie in 2019, we presented it (in a private way) to all the people that played a role in the project, both actors and operators, in Trescore Balneario's Cinema (under the propriety of LaScatola). The same day (11 October 2019) we announced to the public the idea to create a short-movie festival, the Cort festival, in our city, a dream that maybe one day will come true.
We began the shooting the 19th may and we ended it the 26th of the same month.
The editing (audio and video) started the 14th September and ended the 11th of October, a few hours before the presentation.
All the story takes inspiration from real people of my family, in their strengths and weaknesses; Margherita is the principal source of inspiration of the story, she's like an ideal muse for the art of Franco.
This movie is dedicated in the great honor of my father, Roberto Pirotta; also a Special thanks go to our best supporter Gianluca.

Win win BEST LOW BUDGET MOVIE at Caorle Film Festival 2020.
