Mental Ideas is working with filmmaker and ambassador Raffaello DeGruttola on a series of powerful short films depicting different mental health conditions, starting with Transference: a bipolar love story about control. The film draws influence from Raff’s difficult relationship with his father, who struggled with a severe version of bipolar disorder throughout his life. Transference was shot in London this week and is currently in post-production. Below are some stills from the film.
Raff’s also submitted 5 slots (and counting..!) as a guest presenter on the Mental Ideas Podcast, in which he talks about his journey as a filmmaker and an actor, and how his relationship with his father has impacted his life. The pod launches on Mental Ideas and RTHK Dec 2018.
