Whatever hardship and pain and trouble you have had to go through during your shoot: that moment makes it all worth it.
When you went to Cuba for the Buena Vista adventure, was it the first time you had been there? I had never been to Cuba before! Of course I had particular plans about how to shoot and how to organise certain ideas, but once we were there, all that went straight out of the window. When Ry let me listen to a rough mix on a cassette, some time had already passed after his initial recording.
He mentioned he might go back. Cuba had been wiped off the map. You really want to come? At the end of Silencio , during the Amsterdam concert, Omara started to cry, and Ibrahim very gently wiped away her tears. For me that moment encapsulates the whole project.
The electricity supply would cut out sometimes. And feeding your crew is a problem because, sadly, food is a problem in Cuba. Among the different Cuban musicians which personalities appealed to you the most? Due to the nature of this shoot I was able to spend time with all the main characters. If you could remake it now with all the original protagonists would you change anything? We were actually witnessing some sort of amazing fairy-tale happening in front of our eyes.
We were just so amazingly lucky to be there, at the right time, in the right place. The rise to global stardom by these once down-and-out musicians was a deeply moving story. Camera technology is a boon, but also a cleverly contrived trap which costs time and money and, worst of all, heavy manning requirements to the detriment of pure cinematic language. And who gets to decide? The board of directors, the committees and the organized pressure groups.
People who, as a rule, lack vision. You are one of the high priests though, and as we recall, you were expressing different views this time last year. You were saying that there are ten good film directors in Greece, and this has been proved.
You implied that you numbered among them and that the money should be finding its way to them. For a start this time last year I might have proposed marriage to you. Despite that, I do believe that we have ten good directors, without including me. I do, however, insist on counting on some filmmakers. No… Because the denigrated ones, in a crazy kind of way, will be the ones I value and would name. Not one of his recognized friends, when circumstances raised them to prominence and gave them the right to add their weight to various group decisions, deigned to examine his cinematographic proposals but instead made a show of ignoring him.
And to sum up, I repeat that patronization has been proven to have buried our cinema. The old producers and filmmakers like Konitsiotis, Gregoriou, K. To book a movie with a producer is a task that needs a specialist, an agent to negotiate, not the director. The only certainty is that the more things develop, the more sick and tired I get of cinema and all its fuss, at least as it gets done in Greece.
To be precise, do you believe that the ideal milieu for an artist to create is psychological pressure or a dictatorship? Well, you take, if not ten, then at least five to finish a film. The movie was just finished a few days ago and will be shown in cinemas this winter.
This scam called the Film Centre must be stopped and it is shameful for directors to cram its corridors and to have their phones catch fire from our calls. Worse of all, to have a new order of small-time producers created who, through their conduct, prolong the fraudulent policy of the Centre and strengthen the state manipulation of the independent directors. Why should cinema go through all this? Does that have anything to do with your attitude towards the Greek Film Centre?
Not to mention that these people have an agenda about what Greeks should be filming. The consolation is that, apart from two stubborn and unrepentant adherents of couleur-locale cinema and because of this, in high demand at festivals , the bulk of Greek directors refuse to be triangulated.
But it leaves me cold. I enjoy being able to admire my peers and their works and do not desire to run them down… Of course, they also should do something about it. Can you explain this phenomenon? I leave it to the analysts and any kind of experts to analyze phenomena. This effort became immediately noticeable by the public and it ended up working to the detriment of their aims and as a wake-up call to the latter. This victory is a first for the creators and the public against the terrorism of the intellectuals, of the agents of confusion and of other technocratic bastards, including the Ford Foundation.
This motley crew had laid low for a while but reared their ugly heads a few years back, aided by inexplicable short memories and bolstered by a number of budding successors, as they utilized even more dangerous methods, such as artificially presenting all films as masterpieces, a method which totally perplexes the public. These schemes were noticed and then they were clumsily applied ten years later.
Perhaps I too am at fault for this delay. I should have persisted more, made films more often and be more at the forefront. It could be that I never sought such a thing and I put the blame for a decisive failing on myself. Anyway, my generation has failed. But how could a feeble buggy muster the impetus when it was saddled with kids, aunts, uncles and insecurity issues at the very moment that we needed a steadily accelerated take off?
Why are we hiding? They loaned their beings and allowed themselves to be used as messengers between the critics and the public. In the end, I believe that the Internet has an overwhelming power and for this reason, shopping online is here to stay.
The main revolutionary aspect that is being brought to life is that the individual himself can actively participate in commercial business. With the aid of sites and forums, individuals can now vend the things that they create at the click of a mouse.
