Danielle, Patricia, Carola and Jorge are a group of friends and this film is about their lives.
Interview with Writer/Director/Producer Carola Aguirre
Congratulations! Why did you make your film?
I made this film because the plan was to share the video like a commercial, then our film was selected for Cannes and the plan changed.
Imagine I’m a member of the audience. Why should I watch this film?
You should watch this film because it’s funny, we play the role ourselves, we didn't have any specific roles, it was really organic.
How do personal and universal themes work in your film?
The film is about four friends trying to describe ourselves, it works because now we live in a world where people are afraid to show their personalities because there are so many people judging.
How have the script and film evolved over the course of their development and production?
The script was always the same.
What type of feedback have you received so far?
“Surely the best way of work is being yourself and the reward comes spontaneously”.
Has the feedback surprised or challenged your point of view?
Yes, i was surprised and it made me more comfortable and secure about my film.
What are you looking to achieve by having your film more visible on www.wearemovingstories.com?
I just wanted to share my work with people, and gain some interest.
Who do you need to come on board (producers, sales agents, buyers, distributors, film festival directors, journalists) to amplify this film’s message?
Definitely journalists and film festival directors.
What type of impact and/or reception would you like this film to have?
I'd like my film to change the viewer's day in a good way.
What’s a key question that will help spark a debate or begin a conversation about this film?
Is your film a comedy?
We Are Moving Stories embraces new voices in drama, documentary, animation, TV, web series and music video. If you have just made a film - we'd love to hear from you. Or if you know a filmmaker - can you recommend us? More info: Carmela
