Director Ricky Mastro and producer Léon Diana describe the experience of shooting 7 Minutes, the potential issue of being disturbing of some scenes that they wanted to keep, and the path to have the film made, which began at Lovers Goes Industry in Turin in 2018.

7 Minutes: Jean, a 55-year-old cop finds her son, Maxime, and his boyfriend hanged in a hotel room. The autopsy reveals that he died of a GHB overdose, just seven minutes after his boyfriend. Trying to find out more about what happened, Jean discovers Club Bisou, his son’s favorite place, where he meets Fabien whom he grows fond of. The desire to discover his son’s world will take him to dangerous and unsettling terrain.
