Director Statement

The film is based on a short story from Lorenzo Donvito, capturing the intense struggle he faced during his coming out to his parents.
The journey led Lorenzo to a profound and existential isolation, leaving him broken, voiceless and in search of a new and more genuine reflection of himself in a world of mirrors.
Visuals and sound are equally important in this experimental piece, shaping the character’s evolution towards freedom and acceptance.
We embraced the challenge of conveying the story in a more abstract yet still emotional way, giving life not only to the protagonist but also to the elements surrounding his silence.
