The Brief

POLPO's story is one inextricably linked to Venice. There are few restaurants that can genuinely transport you to its source of inspiration as soon as you're seated. POLPO is one. And although that story had been told through word many a time, it hadn't through video.

Shot and cut between the cities most significant to POLPO’s heritage, the film aimed to merge those worlds seamlessly.

Trips to Venice, London and Brighton allowed us to capture moments in each that felt part of the same family, in turn making you question whether this was actually all shot in one location. And with the soundtrack taken directly from our live footage of Venice's street musicians, a layer of authentic, human imperfection was added. A trait that POLPO looks to embrace in each of their bacari.
