Andrew Filippone, Jr. - Happy Monday

Boston native Andrew Filippone, Jr. attended Emerson college and worked on an unfinished project which has recently had new life breathed into it.

Called Happy Monday, it is a unique experimental documentary, also referred to as a "documentary film object." It represents the tragedy of unfinished work, the stasis of images captured on negatives but never given life through projection on a film screen.

Andrew now lives and works in New York City, where he heads the production company Telling Story.
