A girl is left on her own, after a car breakdown, in the open countryside . Finding herself alone and with a dead battery in her phone, she decides to ask for help to the nearest and only house there is. An old and gentle lady will open the door, offering her hospitality. The girl, a bit confused, will soon realize that the old lady’s gentle manners are, actually, hiding something mysterious. This is how Echo begins.
Echo is a short film about the old age, about the imprisonment of the body and their relationship with time. With this short film I wanted to describe the decay of man, his despair towards the inevitable end that forces him to come to terms with himself. Echo is a thriller , but it is also a work of contemplation of the human being in relationship with time. Echo is a work on the inevitable loneliness of man, on his impediment in relating with others, on the intolerable absurdity of existence. My goal is to try and capture the flow of time, to show the present that immediately becomes past memory. A Tarkovskyan way of sculpting time, through the picture as a work of memory, a dream.
The writing of the screenplay is done and we’re heading towards the shoot. After a successful location scouting , we have put together a team of professionals and started preparing the work plan for the shoot, which is to be held in May. The casting for the actresses is done and we picked up two great professionals like Paola Marina Spiders and Manuela Parodi, who has just played in the film “La Luna Turin”.
The help we are asking for is to cover the expenses related to the cast, the crew and the post-production.
We have established some interesting rewards for each amount of money that you will feel free to donate.
We need all of you to be able to give life to this project, which we have blind faith in! Support us , believe in us, believe in ECHO !
