Albert Einstein once said, “I believe the most important mission of the state is to protect the individual and make it possible for him to develop into a creative personality.” This quote is truly applicable to the short film “La Luna”. Throughout “La Luna,” a young boy named Bambino experiences many difficulties and arguments with his father, Papȧ, and his grandfather, Nonno. Bambino is coaxed into following alongside his father and grandfather’s footsteps-- sweeping away the stars. However, towards the end of the film, Bambino becomes confident with himself by taking risks and developing as his own person. Although others’ influences may inspire creativity for the better, Enrico Casarosa’s short film, “La Luna,” indicates that creativity comes from a person’s individuality.
