HEART ON FIRE TRILOGY 1

WORLD PREMIERE AT LOCARNO FILM FESTIVAL 2009

Two girls star in this musical drama amazing road! A van, a beach, a reed, very homesick, girls in flower perched at gas stations … and a little music.

The result of a research on the daily lives of young people from the suburbs of large cities, the film sets out to study the time, the habits and the images emerging from contemporary experience seen through the eyes of the body and the lower middle class and seeks to build a compliment cinema, fable and resistance of bodies in front of the uncertainties of a transitional space-time, hybrid – where plastic and wood, the show mambembe and the universe of video games, old and new intertwine. A mixture of a realist cinema observation of everyday life with a narrative of juvenile adventures and the universe of music.
