The aspiring directors will create short films inspired by real lives, told through the eyes and emotions of characters immersed in the reality of their everyday life. The glasses from Giorgio Armani’s Frames of Life collection are the element that bond the stories with a precise narrative role, through which the characters observe reality, capture sensations and live events in their respective cities which, for this edition, serve as frames to the stories themselves.
Here are 2 entries from 2014.
