Director's note

When I was a child I went to the woods with my mum and my grandmother. We were looking for chestnuts and mosses. I was overwhelmed by the silent dialogue of the nature: the rustling of the wind among the leaves, the herbs’ perfumes, the sound of those who live and frequent those places. I returned home tired but regenerated as if what I had seen and heard had purified me.

The protagonist of the short film is Matteo who, thanks to the “healing power” of the forest, must disconnect from the virtual world. The abuse of the smartphone steals time, ambitions and objectives to the lives of young people and for this reason I hope that “The first time” can be a source of reflection for those who can not or do not try to look over the world around us.
