“1999” is about the lives of six teenagers born in 1999.
Erroneously of what I expected, I did not meet young people who mirror contemporary society in which rot and decay are easy to find.
While I was working with them, I found out that Alessio, Chicca, Flavio, Francesco, Irene and Rebecca, lead a normal life, not characterized by bad education, but focused on their family and on few good friends, lives where the fun is not guaranteed by the excesses and by wild evasion.
In this work, I tried to show how and where they live, what they study, what they love and what they hate, what they are learning, their feelings about the future and how they perceive their adolescent stage today.
“1999” is a research effort on the poetry and purity of the teen age, the naivety of these young people and their way of being, after all, still children.
