‘Prism’: the (double) portrait of adolescence in the Italian series on Amazon Prime Video


    Generational portraits are always a curious type of fiction that allows us to identify the keys of the represented stage but also the particularities with which the protagonists live it. An account of coming of age, or passage from adolescence to maturity, is very different if we place it in Spain in the 1970s or in India in the 1990s. That is why they are always interesting, because of the social analysis they offer. As we already verified with productions such as Time is up, Doc (Telecinco), Three meters over the sky or more recently Wife (Antena 3), life in Italy captures a lot of attention in our country. Amazon Prime Video understands the magic of this type of fiction and that is why he invites us to go through a very particular story through the lives of Marco and Andrea, the protagonists of Prism.

    The new series on the platform premieres on Wednesday, September 21 and, through 8 chapters, it aims to explore the relationships and identities of two young Italians in a present context. Yes indeed, Prism harbors a particularity as real as life itself, these teenagers are two twin brothers that, despite their physical resemblance, as is logical, they face life very differently.

    All 8 episodes of Prism lead us down a colorful path, literally, because as if it were a rainbow, each one is titled with a different color in a chromatic transition that serves as a metaphor for the progress of the characters in the series and, at the same time, as a nod to the LGTBI key of the series. Thus, we start in red on a journey of adolescents from discomfort and the search for personal motivations, the correct treatment of sexuality, self-knowledge and the right company; to travel to the target and see its evolution towards the peace that achieving the objectives provides, accepting and loving oneself and surrounding oneself with the people with whom to face adult life.
