Tell us about your artistic path.
“Artistic path” sounds very wide so I’ll just break it down to when I started actively trying to do artistic work. And that more or less happened when I got into Art university 1 year ago, before that I did my education as a kindergarten teacher. So I guess I‘m quite at the start and there‘s a lot more to explore for me!
Let’s talk about your work in competition at Laceno d’Oro: how did you start? Where did you find the spark?
I did the movie in the frame of a lecture, my first hands on moving image course. At first I just started picking up random ideas, decided for the lido in my hometown as location and started to think of situations I thought that were interesting and fun to look at. Many of the shots were brought up by myself or the actual actors during the process of filming. I basically lived in the lido for two weeks and everything was so immediate as I only cast people who live near it and are close to me personally. Oh and also a short movie called Leyenda Dorada really inspired me!
Cinema and festivals are finally coming back to theatres. Do you think that, after the last two years, cinema – from production to distribution and access – has inexorably changed?
I can’t really say too much on that regard as I have no insight on really “Producing” a movie with a budget.
