This section is dedicated to the made-by-kid films, and specifically terrific kids. The films come indeed from an Italian-American archive found by Home Movies on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, in New York suburbs. Rob Niosi and his friends are not even teenagers when they start filming as a game with the home cameras stolen from the family, experimenting hand over fist cinema genres – horror, splatter, science fiction – and animation techniques, tricks, low-angle shots and visual effects. Growing up, the game becomes more serious and their style irreverent, if not rebellious. Later on, some of the young men become artists.
