Director's Note

Magic Miles is set in one of those ordinary afternoons when somehow small details and experiences collide to become an exhilarating and perfect moment, maybe palpable only to you, you who it might come to more easily because you’re young and invincible, exuberant for anything and everything matters, even - or especially because - the ordinary stuff consumes you, like the fun of a crush, the thrill of a new album, the drive on a glorious day - you live such days with unassailable charm and hunger.
