Cult filmmaker Fabrizio Federico has been a fan of British kitchen-sink movies since watching then as a kid on Sunday afternoons on the BBC. Those wistful, cynical, melancholic, character driven class-conscious stories really struck a chord with the young director in the making.
Since his young days he has made two kitchen-sink/experimental films Loon (2017) & Teddy Bears Live Forever (2019). They are at once jubilant, melancholic, defiant and vulnerable. It's as if Friedrich Nietzsche started directing episodes of The Simpsons, but made through an indie sensibility, where none of the cast know whats happening, with plot lines beginning and disappearing into thin air, creating an explosive longing for clarity that never materialises in a cobwebbed cinematic landscape of night stalker imagery and full moon voices.
