Luisa Pretolani latest short film  ’The Letter’ filmed in lockdown.

The film is based around Mike Smith’s grandfather’s letter while he was getting ready to go back to the front in 1917 as an objectors of conscience, and was receiving medical training.

Starring Lily Smith who was in Luisa’s film ‘The Glove’, She gives a wonderful interpretation of the young student coming across her own family history.

The short finds its wings with beautiful music of our client Emilio Merone which breathes life into every frame.
