”Folder” is the personal archive folder of Cosimo Terlizzi made of one year memories: videos, photographs and chat conversations. The archive turns into an autobiographical film.
Through the editing of the archived memories, the author looks for his own identity, for the place where he belongs, in a tense and precarious historical dimension where Europe always gets smaller.
They are lives of trips from a capital to another one, towards an ideal dimension. It’s an extreme mobility, a low-cost mobility. His friends are all over Europe. It’s an exploded generation which pieces are collected by Cosimo Terlizzi with the intention to rebuild the aspects of a concealed reality; like in front of an enormous undone puzzle.

DIRECTOR'S NOTES:
I’ve decided to make “Folder” as a pictures diary. I documented by instinct everything that could be interesting to represent my generation. It’s a diary that is unveiled even before being placed in its own archive.
