THE OPEN REEL ACQUIRES THE BEAR TALES
The Open Reel deals on the acquisition for sales and festivals purposes of the first long feature film directed by Italian duo Samuele Sestieri and Olmo Amato: The Bear Tales (Italy, Finland, Norway, 2015, 67 mins). The Bear’s Tales represents a low-budget project born from a real challenge: filming in two people only, during a forty days long trip across Finland and Norway.
Samuele Sestieri and Olmo Amato covered all the tasks necessary for filming from the production to the direction, from the photography to the acting.
Wordly premiered in Competition at the last Torino Film Festival, produced by Samuele Sestieri and Olmo Amato, with the associate production of Mauro Santini and his Offsetcamera, The Bear Tales is a film set in a world that has been abandoned by humans, in which a mechanical monk follows a strange little red man. After crossing forests, dead cities and desolate plains, the two odd characters reach the top of a magic hill. The discovery of a torn teddy bear who’s in bad shape reconciles the two. They join forces, in hopes of bringing the inanimate toy to life and escaping the void that surrounds them.
