Govert Janse

Editor Govert Janse collaborates with Dutch director Victor D. Ponten on a film to mark the one year anniversary of the Patta Milan store  ‘Ladri di Patta’, a six minute short film inspired by the neo-realist classic ‘Ladri di Biciclette’ (better known as Bicycle Thieves, Vittorio de Sica, 1948).

Ponten: With ‘Ladri di Patta’ I‘ve combined Italian neorealism with streetwear aesthetics to tell a story about a boy, his father and a new pair of sneakers.” The score was composed by Patta-affiliated musician Willem de Bruin and producer Morien van der Tang and is a re-imagination of the melancholic soundtrack of the original film.
