THE BIG TREASURE

Estate. Puglia. Dovendosi trasferire a Milano con la famiglia, Davide trascorre la vigilia della partenza con i suoi amici Luca, Serena e Alex. Ritrovata una vecchia mappa nella quale è segnato il luogo dove hanno seppellito da piccoli il “loro tesoro”, decidono di recuperarlo. Arrivati sul luogo, al termine della giornata, non riescono a trovarlo, ma tale esperienza è servita a Davide per comprendere di essere pronto ad iniziare una nuova fase della sua vita.

DIRECTOR'S STATEMENT

The Big Treasure was created for the Directing I course test at NABA – Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti di Milano. The first intent was to tell a story of friendship and of the bond with the homeland, for me Puglia. The project started from these two themes, in which I chose to tell the last day a group of friends spend together.
