  • Posted On:August 21, 2022

‘Transference’, written, directed and produced by Raffaello Degruttola and his production company Contro Vento Films, has achieved an extraordinary amount of views with figures increasing by over 30,000 per day.

‘Transference’ stars Lotte Verbeek (The Last Witch Hunter, Outlander), Christina Chong (Line Of Duty, Star Trek: Strange New Worlds) and Raffaello Degruttola in the lead role of Nik.

The film's story follows a Norwegian nurse called Katrina (played by newcomer Emilie Sofie Johannesen), who starts her new job in palliative care in a London hospital. When she meets the older nurse Nik, Katrina begins a passionate love affair that ultimately suffers the consequences of concealed mental health problems.

The film was shot on a micro-budget in the style of guerrilla filmmaking on the streets of London with minimal crew, using and borrowing locations from friends and family.

Rafaello Degruttola said in an interview: "The greatest currency for a creative is having people experience and appreciate their vision and work on a mass scale”. He continued with “Selecting YouTube as the viewing platform for 'Transference' has provided so much gratification because my film has been found and shared by so many - and huge budgets weren't needed to get here."

Actress Lotte Verbeek added: "Money was never a motivation when it comes to small projects like this. It's all about the inspiration and the heart of the film. It's inspiring to be on the creative level of storytelling."
