I racconti dell'orso
festivals & awards:
In a world abandoned by men, a mechanical monk follows a strange little red man. The two characters see deserts, visit ghost cities and walk in savage woods just to reach a magic hill. They will find an old, battered teddy bear, and this will be the first step of their friendship. Together, they will try with all their might to breathe life into the bear, so to fill the void of their lives.
The Bear Tales is a low-budget production stemmed from a bet – to film a whole movie during a trip from Finland to Norway with a crew of just two elements . Samuele Sestieri and Olmo Amato worked on every part of the movie, from production to direction, from photography to acting. Postproduction took almost two years to be completed, thanks to the help of many collaborators, with funds collected through a Indiegogo crowdfunding campaign.
