Q&A with the director

Chema_Garcia_ibarra award

How long did it take to make your short? Was it difficult to get financing?

The film was financed with an award for the screenplay so to find money was not very difficult… Also, it is a very cheap film. The writing and re-writing and re-re-writing took some months. At the end of that very long process of writing, the short film had become so clear in my mind that the shooting and the editing went really fast.

Which thoughts come to mind concerning a “European cinema community”?

A community that makes natural and generic viagra the movies that I really like: movies made without fear.

If you owned a theatre for one night, which films would you screen?

I would make a special session with the craziest collaboration between a director and an actor: the movies by Werner Herzog with Bruno S.

What is your next project?

I REALLY want to make a LONG FILM!
