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.
