ROBERTO PRESTIA

SUBSTITUTE

Between the age of 16 and 19, Prestia went around his home town filming pretty much everything which would happen around himself.

Amateur footage, rough, taken with a mini-dv camera.

The following years Prestia started editing that footage, trying to make sense of his late teens.

The result is 'Substitute', a 70 minutes film about teenagers growing up and developing a relationship with their own image (incarnated in the camera).

This film is not available to a wide audience because some of the lead characters have not allowed Prestia to share the footage publicly.

And this is a shame. But some rough fragments are here available.
