Inspired by a short stay at "La trappa"
on the hills outside Biella, with young people from the area and elsewhere,
Ishan got the idea to make a short film about the lives of a few teenagers
living in the town. It is a film about their active and sometimes reckless
lifestyles, their beliefs, motivations and aspirations. Walking in the
mountains they stumble upon an abandoned monastery where a powerful experience
awaits them. The film will be about 15-20 minutes, using actors from in
and around Biella. It will include techniques like cell animation and
stop motion apart from video and documentary footage. Although the film
is based on young people's situation in Biella, the subject stretches
further and embraces a crucial theme present in youth culture across the
world. Ishan would like to screen the film at a local cinema in Biella.
