Filmmaker Alessandro Cassigoli is not all that prolific an Instagramer, by the looks of it. He hasn’t posted anything in close to two months, and has yet to reach the nice round number of 20 photos. But the documenting of everyday minutiae and logging of friends’ lives, well, he was doing that long before Gen-Z kids and salaried social media stars made it cool.
At least he was in his twenties, anyway. Longtime friend and fellow filmmaker Casey Kauffman reminisced recently, “Ale filmed everything. And he was the only one doing it!”
