Mental Ideas is working with filmmaker and ambassador Raffaello DeGruttola on production of a series of powerful short films depicting different mental health conditions through a blend of contemporary dance, performed by the incredible Param Vibe Mirpuri, poetry and acting. The first short film in the series, about bipolar disorder, has already been submitted to indie film festivals and is destined to be one of the highlights of the Brainstorm Film Festival later this year.
Raff’s also submitted 5 slots (and counting..!) as a guest on the Mental Ideas Podcast, in which he talks about his journey as a filmmaker and an actor, and how his relationship with his bipolar father has impacted his life. The pod launches on Mental Ideas and RTHK early 2019!RAFFAELLO DEGRUTTOLA – TRANSFERENCE 20-11-2018 from Raffaello Degruttola on Vimeo.
