Under 5 Minute Festival Testimonial – June 22, 2018

Irene Blei

In the case of my film, what is most important is to have the short seen as widely as possible It was highly moving to have a film done by yourself seen and understood in another country, another hemisphere, in a differet context by an audience with whom I did not share a common past or idiosyncrasy.
I feel deeply grateful to the Festival for this brilliant idea of getting an audience feedback, and for the way they carry everything along.

It was amazing to see how people felt about the film exactly as I had planned it! the lack of subtitles, the camera work, the final reveal… it is a confirmation that all those crazy ideas weren’t that crazy after all.
