Fabrizio Federico is a young film maker and he’s on a mission: “I would like to create a film movement that is the equivalent of punk rock. One Take. No rehearsal. DIY. Pure improvisation. Don’t write a script, just be“.
The name of this movement is Pink8 and it’s all about urgency, pure artistic acts and an uncontaminated desire to express yourself; Fabrizio, in fact, said to Little White Lies during an interview: “You don’t need experience to make a film. You don’t need experience to fall in love or die. The reason why you should make a film is because it’s killing you not to“.
The synopsis of the first short film by Fabrizio (the title is Black Biscuit) is pretty simple: Chet on one fateful day finds his true calling – film making. To follow his passion he decides to quit his “job” of male prostitute. He realizes that selling his body diminishes his true dream.
The cast is made up of non actors, homeless people, outsiders, prostitutes and the budget is almost non existent.
