About this submission
In collaboration with film students in Italy and New York City, we created a 5 episode series documenting the experiences of Gen Z Youth in Italy. Specifically, exploring the lives of youth in Milan, Lombardy - one of the harshest hit regions in the world. I had the privilege to be the executive producer as well as director for some episodes. The short film attached was directed by me and focuses on the life of 20 year old Tolomeo. Through his photographs and journals, I wanted to explore what mental health and creativity look like during a pandemic.
