Mental Ideas is working with filmmaker and Mental Ideas ambassador Raffaello Degruttola on a feature-length film, Transference: A Bipolar Love Story. As well as directing, Raff co-stars in the film alongside Emilie Sofie Johannsesen. The film is set to mesmerizing choreography and poetry performed by the incredible Param Vibe Mirpuri. Songstress Sadie Pickering performs the haunting melodies. Mental Ideas’ Sadie Kaye is helping Raff produce the film, which is beautifully paced and edited by Simon Haynes and Charlie Lort-Phillips.
The feature-length film draws influence from Raff’s difficult relationship with his father, who struggled with a severe version of bipolar disorder throughout his life. Transference: A Bipolar Love Story is currently being shot in London. Below are some stills from the film.
