How to shoot flowers

Directed by Francesca Svampa

During quarantine, the director has been invited to make a film about her lockdown experience.
To face this challenge, she draws images from her memory —and archive—, to remind herself which way to move.

“How to shoot flowers” is a personal essay film where artistic creation and personal expression become the medium to think and process life.

The result is an essay film about filmmaking and life as a creative act.
