About the movie

It all began…

In Hollywood, Los Angeles. Last Summer we met Cloris Leachman, a memorable theatre/cinema actress and the muse of Mel Brooks. We started to elaborate a subject with children and seniors as protagonists, inside a little house in a faraway land, suspended in a dimension between reality and imagination. We deeply focused on the temporal concept of human life. The goal being to make a film about this, we decided not to shoot a full-lenght film, but a short one instead. Moreover, in order to give the film a candid flavor, we selected the cast giving no details about the scenes.


The film: for whom

Many sponsors showed interest in the realization of our film: Renzo Pezzani Elementary School of s.Lazzaro and “Filmagogy, Theory and Practice of the Fillm in educational contexts”, an international fundation supported by L.G.Verga and Arts Department, Bologna and Venice Film Festival.

We are glad to announce that BREAK has been selected among other films to be on screen at  the 71st Venice Film Festival, as a testimonial for Filmagogia and Augusta Pini Fundation. Here you will read more details about the new Venice award, which will be starting next year.
