"Crows flutter over fields of rapeseed like soot, slow clouds stumble amongst the mountains, and a dog for every balcony barks at the night."

This is my Farnham graduation film, made in 2009. Voiced by my grandmother, the film is a loosely narrative part poison pen, part love letter to my family’s home town in Italy. It tries to evoke the essence and atmosphere of the place, all the things that fill me with nostalgia and boredom when thinking of small-town home.
