“Family First”, a guy split in half

Collater.al Contributors

A few years ago, on Collater.al, we talked about Marco Mucing and his work halfway between direction and videomaking. Today we come back to him to tell about his last short film called Family First.

Family First tells the story of Marco, a young skater from Milan divided between an apparently perfect life and the search of his own identity. His is a double and shared story about identity, belonging, diversity and inclusion.
Family First is a journey through the skyline of Milan and a universal picture of the world of young adults in constant search of themselves.

This short film is an extraordinary example of independent cinema.
Check it out.
