My fellow filmmaking friends Bat-Sheva Guez and Adam Witten found some cheap flights and invited me on a whirlwind adventure filmmaking trip to Milan!  While we were there, we all helped each other make things.  I made this documentary from start to finish (including finding a subject and editing….the trip coincided with the 2011 Doc Challenge so I sent in my film from Italy).  No small feat considering that none of us knew any Italian.  Fortunately, we met the incredible cinematographer Danae Mauro. She helped us navigate the city, the language barrier, and the best working meals I’ve ever had.

Film inspired by music track by Marshall Bolin.
