Filmmaker's note

When did SHOWstudio's invitation to speak about PUNK. An honor and incredible theme due to be a visceral movement of that generation. And one of the most genuinely attitudes PUNK was the suicide of Sid Vicious pro of his love and death pact with Nancy Spungem. The letter left for him and the theory of transformation PUNK LOVE, is a free interpretation of postmortem Sid & Nancy meeting, the turbulence of the essence of being, identity of persons, the feelings, the relationship to the reunion and transformation in light . With this concept of everything being light, to capture the "soul" of the characters have developed a unique technique that I registered Motion Light Painting ® to try make the Romeo & Juliet of PUNK.
