Meet the filmmakers 2014: POISON

Interview mit Regisseurin Roni Rainhartz

Meet the filmmakers 2014: POISON Regisseurin Roni Rainhartz

Describe your film POISON in one sentence.
The struggle of a young soldier girl coping within the Israeli military system.

What's the idea behind the film?
The idea behind the film is our ability to make a free choice, even when we live in a society where we are expected to behave like everyone else and follow the rules in the name of a great ideology.

Behind the scenes

Is it your first time in Munich and/or Germany?
It is my first time in Munich! Third time in Germany.

What do you expect of Munich? What are you most looking forward to?
Every visit to Germany is exciting for me because this is where my grandparents came from. I'm looking forward to explore Munich, meeting new people and watching their films. I think it's the best way to get to know someone: watch his film - you'll know so much about him.

Behind the scenes

What is your favorite movie and who's your favorite director?
I don't know about  a favorite movie, the question is too big. But a few years ago I saw "The Hunt" by Thomas Vitenberg, it's still stuck in my head.

Why did you want to become a filmmaker?
I don't remember really wanting to be a filmmaker, I just became one. I guess I wanted to say something to the world and this is the best way for me to express it.

Behind the scenes

If you weren't a filmmaker, you'd be…?
A veterinarian. For sure.
