Brainstorm‘s ExperiMENTAL film platform is working with filmmaker and ambassador Raffaello DeGruttola on producing a series of short films depicting different mental health conditions in an art-house style through a blend of contemporary dance, performed by the incredible Param Vibe Mirpuri, poetry and acting. The first short in the series, A Bipolar Love Story, has already been submitted to indie film festivals around the world and is sure to be one of the highlights of the Brainstorm Film Festival. Other shorts in the series include A Dysmorphic Love Story, A Compulsive Love Story, A Narcissistic Love Story, A Borderline Love Story and An Antisocial Love Story.
Raff’s also submitted 5 slots (and counting..!) as a guest on the Mental Ideas Podcast, in which he talks about his journey as a filmmaker and an actor, and how his relationship with his bipolar father has impacted his life. The podcast launches on Mental Ideas and RTHK in 2019!
